In 



a beanieless, placardless, unhar- 
ried atmosphere the Centennial 
Class of 1963 was duly oriented 
into the stream of campus life. 

In the heat of a long, hot sum- 
mer, groups of two hundred fresh- 
men were tested by the Guidance 
Office staff and received indoc- 
trination in campus traditions and 
regulations from the Deans of 
Men and Women. 

The parents of the freshmen 
were briefed on the expectations 
of the University with regard to 
the conduct — both academic and 
social — of their sons and daugh- 
ters. An explanation was given of 
the guidance, counselling and stu- 
dent services available at the T T ni- 
versity. 

Thp testing program was con- 
ducted very smoothly, according 
to staff observers. Scores were 
available to the freshmen to aid 



in therr ourse selection and place- 
ment.

Guidance, commented: "The suc- 
cess of this program can only be 
measured in terms of the success 
of the individual student in his 
college experience. More students 
received 'advanced placement' this 
year than ever before." 

(Ed. Note; Freshmen who dem- 
onstrate required proficiency in a 
given subject are allowed to by- 
pass the introductory course in 
that subject and start immediate- 
ly with an advanced course.) 

With the aid of departmental 
advisors, freshmen were given the 
opportunity to fill out their own 
schedules. Tuesday, Thursday and 
Saturday classes were mandatory 
in most cases. 

Each week end program was 

climaxed by a "Co-rec" night in

Smith Prexy Mendenhall 
Speaks To Student Leaders 



Over 150 students, faculty and 
administrators attended the 
Eighth Annual Student Leaders' 
Conference last Friday in the SU. 

Student leaders representing all 
major campus organizations 
sought new knowledge of the cam- 
pus community at various work- 
shops. 

Keynote speaker Dr. Thomas 
Mendenhall, the new president of 
Smith College, spoke prior to the 
workshop sessions, on "Leaders 
and Leadership on the. College 
Campus." 

He called for a "clearer realiza- 
tion of the central purpose of an 
academic institution by keeping 
the 'extra' in extracurricular". 

He also encouraged a "broader 
appreciation of where leadership 



can be developed in an institu- 
tion." 

Suggestions were made in the 
workshops for alleviating certain 
campus problems ,and for a look 
at the plans for the coming year. 

Including among the topics 
were: "Honor and Service Socie- 
ties", "Recognized Student Or- 
ganizations Policy", "Student 
Government", "Student-Organiza- 
tion Communications," "General 
Athletic Policy", and "Public Re 
lations." 

The Conference committee 
which organized the meeting was 
headed by Dennis Twohig '61. 
Other cornmittee members were 
Judy Madden 'fit, Carol Jones '61, 
Mary Lou O'Keefe »61, David 
Mraz '61, and Russell Irving '60. 



Statewide Salary Fate 
Hinges On Comm. Decision 

hy RICHARD MacLEOD '60, Editor in Chief 

A conglomerate bill combining State Teachers Colleges' 
and all state employees' raises with the UMass Salary hike 
was still in committee at 3 p.m. today and a decision is not 
expected until tomorrow or Wednesday. 

The House had passed the bill last Wednesday by a 160 
to 47 after eliminating all non-teaching positions. 

It was in the Senate that the original bill, H1030, which 
provided only UMass faculty raises, was defeated earlier 
this month after having passed the House by a 104-99 vote. 
While the university coaches, sident John Powers that ALL 



doctors, athletic directions, etc, 
along with the administrative 
staffs of the 10 teachers col- 
leges were eliminated from the 
final bill, almost 1300 teachers 
would have become eligible for 
raises ranging from $403 to 
$1261 per year had not Power's 

$1,000 ceiling been adopted. 
HAD LiVEh OF A CAT 

The original bill, as amended 
on the flooi of the house, was 
defeated in successive reconsi- 
derations but was revived with 
skillful regularity by its sponsor 
Rep. Sumner Z. Kaplan (D- 
Brookline) and UMass Trustee 
Rep. Philip Whitmore (R-Sun- 
derland). 

One representative was heard 
to comment that "this... bill 
has more . . . lives than a . . . cat." 

The insistance of Senate Pre- 



state employees be given a pay 
raise if the teachers received one 
was the cause for the original 
Senate defeat of the bill. 

The campaign had been given 
imputus by an alumni drive to 
"let the Legislature know" public 
feeling on the bill. Also, a letter 
which called for support on the 
measure, was sent to the parents 
of 6000 students by Senate Pre- 
sident Robert Zelis '60 and Col- 
legian Editor-in-Chief Richard 
MacLeod '60. 

Legislators reported today 
that the reaction to the contro- 
verscy was overwhelming. Sena- 
tor Powers was quoted as say- 
ing: "If everyone wants the 
raises, they're going to have to 
pay for them." Payment would 
presumably be in the form of 
additional state taxes. 



Faculty Vote Backs 
Prexy 9 s Prohibition 



Prohibition has been introduced 
to the University of Massachu- 
setts campus. 

By a vote of 413-33, the faculty 
approved President Mather's rec- 
omendation that alcoholic bever- 
ages be banned "at any Univer- 
sity social function, on University 
property, and any housing which 
accommodates students in resi- 
dence." 

In instituting this policy, the 
administration pointed out that 
the student body has shown its 
inability to administer any policy 
consistent with the liquor laws of 
the Commonwealth of Massachu- 
setts. According to a memo from 
South College, "Every Fraternity 
president admitted that every so- 
cial event or party of these or- 
ganizations has been in violation 
of these laws for years." 

The president stated that after 
"discussing the matter with the 
Executive secretaries of all the 
National fraternities, with all the 
Presidents of the New England 
State Universities, and with many 
other mature and responsible in- 
dividuals, T am convinced that 
failure to institute firm policy in 
this area ... is not even educa- 



tionally sound." 

"By removing this problem as 
an issue with which the adminis- 
tration has to deal," Mather con- 
tinued, "creative energies will be 
free to develop a broadened Uni- 
versity social program. 

"Our weakness in lack of such 
a policy has continuously hamp- 
ered a full development of the 
University by placing an undue 
emphasis on alcoholic beverages as 
a central concern of social func- 
tion," he continued. 

One University official explain- 
ed that the new policy is aimed at 
breaking the fraternity monopoly 
of campus social life. 

Mather also said that there will 
be no "police" efforts, save those 
developed by the individual organ- 
izations. His remarks indicated 
that each individual student has 
a moral obligation, in his volun- 
tary association with the Univer- 
sity, to honor the commitments 
involved. Also, disciplinary action 
will be taken whenever violations 
are brought to the attention of 
the administration. 

The final discipline for drunk- 
eness or disorderly conduct is ex- 
pulsion. 



Mather 
Resigns Post 

In Protest 
Over Politics 

President Mather's mid-summer 
resignation, coming as a result of 
the defeat of the faculty pay in- 
crease bill in the State Senate on 
August 16, has oeen cited as 
"courageous" by many top edu- 
cators. Abram L. Sachar, Presi- 
dent of Brandeis University, com- 
mented: "Well, good for him." 

The resignation, which will be- 
come effective June 30, 1960, was 
the only move Mather said he 
could make to help the sons and 
daughters of Bay State residents 
and the future development of the 
University. 

He announced his resignation 
10 months in advance to avoid 
"all this personal monkey busi- 
ness." He explained, "I don't want 




Vcner Reed 
PRESIDENT MATHER 

to be responsible for ruining a 
whole program and the future of 
a bunch of kids." 

One of these personal attackers 
called Preside^ Mather the edu- 
cator "with ma.d!? and chauf- 
feur." (Mather has one maid; a 
non-uniformed university mechan- 
ic occasionally drives his car.) 

Mather is also the nation's low- 
est paid public university presi- 
dent ($15,000 a year) and he is 
the only one that has to pay rent 
for his house ($100 a month >. 

President Charles W. Cole of 
neighboring Amherst College 
said. "He's done a grand job aiid 
it will be hard to find a replace- 
ment." 

Pres. Mather has headed the 
University for the^past five years. 
He was responsible for the pro- 
gram of expansion that trans- 
formed UMass into a major edu- 
cational institution.

Good Aim; Poor Means 

President Mather's new policy in regard 
to the use of alcoholic beverages by under- 
graduate students we recognize to be a Bin- 
cere effort on the part of the faculty and the 
administration to improve the social climate 
on campus ; we also declare that the means 
adopted, of which means the new regulation 
ifi a significant part, are not wise. 

The new policy would impose upon the 
University undergraduate students a ruling 
more stringent than the law itself; it 
denies those having reached the legal age of 
majority what the law declares to be their 
privilege. 

It appears to us that if the faculty and 
the administration wish to take steps to 
broaden the scope of University social life, 
it need not have to abandon a policy border- 
ing on license only to replace it with the 
other extreme of complete absistence. Surely 
between the One and the other alternative 
there must lie a middle way. 

J. A. M. 
\Vodno*dav. A Middlp Way ... 



Education Without Politics 

President Mather's resignation was ex- 
pected by many students — it was not ex- 
pected this June, however. His early resigna- 
tion was a direct consequence of the rejec- 
tion by the Senate of HI 030. 

It seems almost absurd that a university 

president should have to take such an active 
part in a state's political merry-go-round; it 
is absurd that ho should be forced to do so, 
and then, to resign in order to attain a de- 
sired end. 

With the salary improvements secured, 
President Mather will at least have the 
knowledge that his resignation was effective 
in arousing public support. Perhaps with the 
new interest currently being displayed on 
the part of a number of Legislators, Proxy 

will even bo able to welcome his succeaor to 
a healthy educational atmosphere 

Such an atmosphere could be possible 
only in the absence of the intense political 
activity which has necessarily characterised 
recent TMass administrations. 

If, when the new chapter is Opened in the 

1'Mass history book in June, there are pros- 
pects of an educational atmosphere that is 
free of politics; and if the faculty may find 
security in the future here at tIMass— then, 
perhaps President Mather may feel that his 
administration has ben a successful one.

"I understand this is a dry campus' 



A Freshman's Impression 
Of Frosh Weekend 

by VERN PERO *63 

"To the class of 1963 at the University of Massachusetts, 
WELCOME!" As one of the Class of '63, I lost count of the number 
of times this overworked greeting was used. At last, in desperation, 
I referred to the master of trite usage, Noah Webster, to find his 
thoughts on the situation. He said that to welcome was to greet with 
cordiality and/or courtesy. I guess a thank you or two is in order. 

While browsing inquisitively among the people to which the 
thought was extended I found a group of alert, intelligent and of 
course thoroughly welcomed people They and I were wandering 
around (and are probably still doing so) with a sense of complete 
acceptance into the college community. Unfortunately there was 
nothing else for us to do but wander around for several hours of the 
day and listen to welcome speeches the rest of the time. 

Perhaps the administration is of the opinion that once boredom 
sets in, the student is so glad to get a rhance to work that the results 
will be more gratifying than otherwise. It could be too that the prob- 
lem of getting settled in a new way of life is supposed to occupy most 
of the freshman's time. In any case the average newcomer to whom 
I spoke seemed to be suffering from what has become a common al- 
lergy, lack of something to do. 

But by turning the coin over I found it has its pleasant side too. 
All of those to whom *I spoke seem* I right at home in their new 
surroundings. Everyone, including the upperclassmen who we some- 
how expected to be ogres with an eye toward making life miserable 
for us to further their own amusement, turned out to be a sociable, 
cooperative and, in general, thoroughly interesting and likeable people. 
The desire to help others and 1>p of service has run rampant, and it 
hasn't gone unnoticed among us new citizens. We smiled, accepted 
the hand that was offered ami tried not to act like the rough-cut and 
unpolished diamonds with which President Mather compared us. 

Thp reaction to the cami tug was harder to come by. I asked 
and received the usual number of everyday comments: "It's so big." 
"It's not nearly so impersonal as we thought it would be." "I'll know 
better how I like it after I've been here a while." "It's fine, but where 
are we going to put the third guy in our room?" "My room-mate is 
such a sweet girl." The list ii i ndless. 

Hut when I put it straight to them, asked them how they felt 
about the whole experience so far, they were suddenly quiet. There's 
no reason at all to ask why; the answer is obvious. We just don't know. 
"Ask me again in a month," was the general comeback, and be the 
good Lord willin' and if the crik don't rise, we will. 

In the meantime let's hope the drop-out rate for the class of '63 
comes nowhere near the anticipated levels. Let's hope that each and 
every freshman becomes a well-adjusted and integrated part of our 
college community. Let's hope that the conditions of political tension 
under which the faculty and administration are laboring at present 
will resolve themselves and that everyone will be able to pursue his or 
her individual labors under conditions conducive to better than aver- 
age results. 

Pm glad to be here, I think most of my class is too. "Welcome" 
may be overworked, but for my part it sounded much better than "do 
ten push-ups." 



FROSH PROBLEMS 

Item.- that freshmen didn't think to bring, but could utilize very 
nicely: 

Ear plugs (for welcome speeches) 

Portable chairs (for waiting on lines . . . and more lines . 
more lines) 

Compass, sextant, and map book (reason's obvious) 
Rope elevator (short cut to the fourth floor). 



and 



Memo From The President 

This memorandum will serve as your official notification institut- 
ing policy on the use of alcoholic beverages by students at the Univer- 
sity of Massachusetts. This policy was recommended by the President 
and approved by a vote of the Faculty (under provisions of Article XI 
of the By-Laws of the Board of Trustees) at a meeting of the Faculty 
on September 10, 1959. 

This regulation is effective immediately and reads as follows: 

A. Unergraduate students, regardless of age, are not permitted 
the use of alcoholic hcverages; 



1. at any University social function; 

2. on University property; 

3. in any housing which accomodates students 
in residence, i.e., those not living with 
parents or spouse. 

B. All students, regardless of age, will be held 
responsible for appropriate conduct with re- 
ference to the use of alcoholic beverages. 

In instituting this policy the Administration re- 
cords its position in the remainder of this memoran- 
dum. 

The first and most obvious reason for the policy 
is that the record is patently clear that the student 
body (as individuals or through on-campus or off- 
campus organizations) has increasingly demon- 
strated its inability to successfully administer any 
policy consistent with the liquor laws of the Com- 
monwealth of Massachusetts. By written statement, 
for example, every Fraternity president at this 
University, in answering the President's question- 
naire of May 1959, admitted that every social event 
or party of these organizations has been in viola- 
tion of these laws for years. Further no chit system 
or method yet conaeived makes legal the serving 
(or distribution) of alcoholic beverages to minors 
and every Fraternity president further admitted a 
preponderant number of each and every Fraternity 
to be under twenty-one years of age. Section 34 of 
the general laws of the Commonwealth, Chapter 
138 provides: . . . "whoever makes a sale or delivery 
of any such (alcoholic) beverages or alcohol to any 
person under twenty-one years of age, either for 
his own use or for the use of his parent or any 
other person . . . shall be punished by a fine of not 
more than two hundred dollars or by imprisonment 
for not more than six months, or both." 

After discussing this matter at length during 
the past summer with the Executive Secretaries 
of all the National Fraternities in conference dur- 
ing July, with all the presidents of the other state 
universities in New England, and with many other 
mature and responsible individuals I am convinced 
that failure to institute firm policy in this area in 
the past by this and previous administrations, is 
not even educationally sound. Our weakness in lack 
of such policy has continuously hampered a full 
development of the university's social program by 
placing a narrowing and undue emphasis on alco- 
holic beverages as a central concern of social func- 
tions. It is our firm conviction that, by removing 
this problem as an issue with which administration 
or leadership has to deal, creative energies will 
be free to develop a broadened University social 
program. 

The matter of enforcement will be an issue 
from the moment this policy is made public. You 
should know our philosophy and plans in this regard. 

The relationship between any individual or rec- 
ognized student organization and any university 
community is a voluntary one. In seeking the priv- 
ilege of this relationship, people commit them- 
selves to meet the responsibilities that are concomi- 
tant with that privilege. Basic among these re- 
sponsibilities is a continuing moral commitment to 
the unique sot of policies, rules, regulations, or 
laws tnat define the nature of that community. 
Since the association is a voluntary one, it is the 
clear responsibility of every individual to deter- 
mine for himself whether he can honor the com- 
mitment involved. If he cannot, as a moral person 
he should not accept the privilege tendered. 

Each student and each organization on campus 
will be expected to assume the responsibility for 
self-discipline with regard to the new policy. No 
signed statements commiting either individuals or 
groups will be required. Instead, it will be assumed 
that the continued existence of an organization on 
campus will be commitment enough. 

Responsible self government as a vital dimension 
of student life will continue. Groups or individuals 
who have problems of self-discipline with regard 
to this or any other University policy will find 
several offices on campus ready to assist them. 

Finally you should know no "police" efforts, 
save those developed by your own organizations, 
will be instituted. Disciplinary action, however, 
whenever violations are brought to the attention 
| of the University. Very simply, the final discipline 
for drunkness or disorderly conduct at the Uni- 
versity of Massachusetts is expulsion. And the 
violation by organizations of University policy pro- 
vides the same administrative recourse. 

We are sincerly convinced that when you have 
given serious consideration to the policy outlined 
above, you will accept it in the spirit in which it 
has been developed and adopted — with a firm convic- 
tion that it sets a standard and defines a social 
climate which is in the bcrt interest, educationally, 
of the University of Massachusetts.

President of the University

LITTLE MAN ON CAMPUS 



ceived from out-of-state. Plans 
for 800 freshman were made for 
next year." 



Jeffrey Appointed Dean; 

Replaces Sieling As 
Agriculture Dept. Head 



Fred P. Jeffrey, associate dean 
of the Stockbridge School of Agri- 
culture at the University of Mas- 
sachusetts was appointed as act- 
ing dean of the College of Agri- 
culture on July 1, 1959, accord- 
ing to an announcement made by 
President Mather. 

Dean Jeffrey will continue in 
his new position for an indefinite 
period. He wll also serve as act- 
ing director of the Massachusetts 
Agricultural Experiment Station 
and of the Cooperative Extension 
Service. 

The position was vacated by the 
resignation of Dr. Dale H. Siel- 
ing, who was appointed scientific 
director of the U.S. Army Quar- 
termaster Research and Engineer- 
ing Command at Natick. 

In announcing Jeffrey's ap- 
pointment, President Mather said 
that the university administration 
was "eminently satisfied with the 



programs and policies instituted 
by Dr. Sieling. It is our intention 
to continue these programs in the 
general direction in which they 
have been moving." 

President Mather said that this 
meant expansion and integration

tice on September 1, it was an- 
nounced by head coach Charlie 
O'Rourke.

nine-game schedule this Satur- 
day as they host the University 
of Maine in a Yankee Conference

UMass Shows Much 
In BC Scrimmage 

The Redmen football team 
scrimmaged Boston College last 
Saturday, Sept. 12, at Chestnut 
Hill. 

Despite BC's 36-18 victory, the 
Eagles were not very impres- 
sive, considering that their first 
two games are against Navy and 
Army. 




JOHN BURGESS 

The UMass tallies were scored 
by halfback Roger Benvenuti, 
quarterback Lenny LeBella and 
end John Burgess. 

Burgess, playing defense, stole 
the ball from an Eagle back on 
the Redmen's twenty-yard line, 
and galloped to pay dirt.

College football for 1959 pro- 
mises to be more complicated 
than ever before. Anyone fami- 
liar with the NCAA football rule 
book will find that five new 
changes have been added to the 
grid iron bible. 

The Rules For '59 
Now let's look at the changes 
and see what they mean. 

1— The width of the goalposts 
has been widened almost five 
feet. This makes the goal posts 
span 23 feet, 4 inches. This will 
certainly increase the number of 
field goal attempts. 

2— The number of time outs 
has been changed from 4 to 5. 
This can be good or bad, depend- 
ing upen who needs the extra 
time. 

3 — Free substitutions of a 
single player when the clock is 
stopped for such things as an in- 
complete pass or an out of 
bounds kick. This will help to 
bring back the specialists of the 
two platoon days. The new rule 
also puts an additional burden 
on the officials. 

4 — The team trying for the 
extra point will be given an op- 
tion of talcing the penalty and 
kicking or running again for the 
extra point, or taking their point 
or points and having the other 
team penalized yard age on the 
kickoff. That's a tricky one. 

Much Needed Change 

6 — Penalties will now be half 
the distance if the distance 
called for reaches the goal line. 
This prevents giving the offen- 



sive team a chance of scoring 
from the one. This is a much 
needed rule change. For years 
the defending teams have been 
hampered by this rule. A penal- 
ty to the one could lead to a loss 
lead to a first down, but a penal- 
ty to the one could lead to a loss 
of six to eight points. 

These five new rule changes, 
although they will certainly lead 
to confusion, promise to bring 
new additions to NCAA football. 




TOM DELNICKAS 

Benvenuti scored on a pass 
from John McCormack, while 
LaBella tallied on an end around 
play.

There will be a meeting for 
all members of the Collegian 
sports staff on Thursday, 
Sept. 17, in the Collegian of-

Mather Cites Horizons, 
Welcomes Prohibition 



by DON CROTEAIT 

Managing Editor 



Rally Sets Off 
Football Season 

This year's first football rally will be held this 
Friday at 7:30 p.m. in the rear of the SU. 

Highlights of the evening will be introductions 
of the football team, cheers lead by the cheer- 
leaders, a speech by Evan Johnson, Director of the 
( Continued an vaae S) 



President Mather opened the 
Academic year at UMass with His 
Opening Convocation address 
yesterday at 11 a.m. in the Cage. 

About 3,000 students and facul- 
ty heard the President reiterate 
his 1953 opening address on 
"Horizon People" and further 
strengthen his stand on the cam- 
pus drinking ban. 

He stated that the typical prod- 
ucts of this University think 
ahead because, "As they learn the 
*how' and 'what' of things, they 
are taught to reason 'why'; sec- 
ond, they are educated to tough- 
mi ndedness by the thinking re- 
quired of courses 'in' things; and 
third they have mastered them- 
selves against extremes as a nec- 
essary product of the first two 
attributes. 

Continuing on this subject, 
Mather pointed out the impor- 
tance of a larger and expanding 
faculty to provide our growing 
type of leadership to realize this 
student body with the correct 
aim. 

He admitted, however.- that 



tl ere are certain restraining fi- 
nancial "road blocks" that will 
prevent "at least a comparable 
portion of the coming generations 
from the educational heritage 
granted you." 

"Somehow the entire Common- 
wealth," he said, "must come to 
realize that the University of 
Massachusetts cannot take its 
planning or operating policy, its 
cues, its promptings, or its lines, 
from Amherst College, or Tufts, 
or Williams, or any other private 
institution which exercises the 
right to limit enrollment by en- 
dowment and gift income." 

As an added note to the ad- 
dress, Mather read his memo- 
randum of the 11th, which was 
sent to the presidents of all 
campus organizations concerning 
the new drinking regulation 
which goes into effect this year. 

In simplifying the regulation 
itself, Mather stated that "This 
policy establishes the basic 
ground rule that the only place

Fraternity Workshops Stress Unity, 
Formal 'Dry Campus' Acceptance 



by MIKE KLEINERMAN 
Publicity Editor 



The fraternities wiii adhere to 
to set the example for the entire 
pleteiy snd wholeheartedly. 

It was decided to promote more 
unity among the fraternites and 
sororities. Further plans in this 
direction will be discussed at 
future Fraternity Presidents As- 
sembly and IFC meetings. 

At other sessions in the worl 
shop progress was made in in- 
ter-fraternity unity. Rushing 
problems were discussed and 
were in part solved. 

At this meeting the rush chair- 
men of each house agreed to meet 
each month to make more head- 
way in rushing situations. 

The stewards' meeting ended in 
the suggestion that bread and 
milk be added to the communal 
purchasing program. Also, a com- 
mittee of house treasurers, stew- 
ards, and managers was formed 
to look into the problems of com- 
munal buying. Gfotfft savings can 
be made through this program. 

Although no definite plans were 
made for hiring a fraternity msn- 
ager, all of the houses agreed 
thst such a position will even- 
tuslly become necesssry snd de- 
sirable. 

The workshop appeared suc- 
cessful in that progress was made 
in clearing up both university and 
fraternity policy. 

President Jean Paul Mather ad- 
dressed the fraternity presidents 
at the IFC workshop last Sunday 
primarily to inform them about 
the various rules concerning the 
dry campus.

by RICH.4RD MacLEOD '60, Editor-in-Chief 

The entire .nate-employed working force at 
UMass will receive salary raises on March 1, 1960. 
This was provided in a bill passed by both houses 
of the Genera] Court last night. 

All state employees were included, along with 
state teachers colleges and technical schools, in the 
bill as prepared and reported favorably by the 
Senate Ways and Means Committee yesterday after- 
noon. 

In a special night session the House voted 201-14 
to accept the bill which had been sent to them by a 
28-2 Senate vote late in the afternoon. 

With this last obstruction cleared from its path, 
the General Court would have attained prorogation 
for this legislative session early this morning. A late 
Special Message from the Governor prevented this. 

The sum total for the "conglomerate" salary 
bill will cost the Commonwealth more than 12 mil- 
lion dollars in the full year starting July 1st. 

The two opposing votes in the upper house were 
cast by Senators Phillip A. Graham (R-Hamilton) 
and Leslie B. Cutler (R-Needham). Both had favored 
the faculty salary raises for UMass, and the state 
teachers colleges and technical schools, but voiced 
opposition to the inclusion of all state employees. 

In fact, it was the voice of Senator Graham that 
was heard above all others chastizing the Senate 
leadership for its "dark of night" vote which killed 
the original UMass salary bill earlier this month. 

In yesterday's debate, Graham charged that 
there was no foreseeable revenue to meet the full 
12 million dollar expense. He challenged the Senate 
to vote a sales tax to provide revenue for the bill. 

Although the Senate debate lasted over two 
hours in the afternoon, the House entertained little 
discussion. Rep. Theodore Vitses (R-Melrose) was 
one of the most outspoken opponents of the bill. 



4850 Enrollment 
For Cent. Year 

A record-setting 4850 students 
were registered last Monday, 
with the figure increasing when 
those students who haven't 
turned in their registration cards 
return them. 

This is the highest number of 
students ever registered at the 
University according to Registrar 
Marshall O. Lanphear. Last Sep- 
tember, 4267 .students were reg- 
istered. These figures include 
only ful-time undergraduate stu- 
dents. 

Lanphear said that there are 
approximately 700 women and 
1050 men in the class of 1963. 

Lanphear, commenting on the 
operation of registration, stated, 
"T thought that it went off very 
well." He added that there were 
some long lines in the SU ball- 
room but these were chiefly the 
result of students wishing to 
change courses. He admitted that 
the 40 freshmen students who 
missed the uummer orientation 
sessions had a lot of trouble be- 
cause all of the classes were full. 

Many students, particularly up- 
porclassmen, reported favorably 
on registration. One senior was 
quoted as saying "It certainly 
was a lot faster and easier than 
the old system in the Cage." 

Lanphear denied a campus 
rumor that 200 students had been 
accepted and then sent letters 
saying that there was no room 
for them. "When we learned that 
the double mens' dormitory in 
front of Kappa Sigma wasn't go- 
ing to be ready in September, we 
were forced to stop admitting stu- 
dents. We had to move some boys 
into the Abbey, but we would 
m-ver deny admittance to a stu- 
dent after we have promised ac- 
ceptance," Lanphear said. 



Chorale Requests 
Student Singers 

The first performance of 
the University of Massachusetts 
Chorale, under the direction of 
Dr. John R. King, will be Octo- 
ber 21. 

Since this date is fast ap- 
proaching, the Chorale asks all 
students inte-ested in singing in 
it during the coming year to con- 
tact Dr. King, whose office is on 
the second floor of Mem Hall. 

The Chorale is a select group 
of men and women who give per- 
formances both on and off cam- 
pus. In the first concert, the ma- 
jor work to be presented will be 
CaHtsimi'l beautiful "Jeptha" 
In addition, several folk songs 
and madrigals will be included. 
Carissimi's beautiful "Jeptha". 

The Chorale wishes to main- 
tain and enrich its reputation. In 
order to do this, the officers feel 
that the organization must util- 
ize the host available voices. For 
this reason, all those interested 
are urged to contact Dr. King as 
soon as possible.

Redmen Open Nine 
Game Slate vs Maine 



by Hai Dutton '60 
Thii Saturday the Redmen will 
embark on their first nine game 
schedule in nearly two decades 
when they entertain the Univer- 
sity of Maine at Alumni Field. 

As Charlie O'Rourke heads into 
his eighth season at the helm, the 
first batch of "Canteen Kids" en- 
ter their Junior year with a fun 
season of varsity experience be- 
hind them. The schedule includes 
the same eight clubs faced a year 
sgo, plus Harvard. Even with 
more experienced personnel in the 
fold, we feel that the best UM 
followers can hope for is a 4-5 
season. 

About the opposition 
Maine opens the slate again 
this year with the all-time series 
even at 2-2-1. Harvard returns to 
the schedule for the first time 
since 1955. Hereabouts they still 
talk about THE GAME in 1954 
when we upset the Crimson 13-7 
in the vast stadium. They usually 
don't add the fact that John Har- 
vard returned the favor a year 
later 60-6. 

Delaware makes its first ap- 
pearance here in October. The 
Redmen played their finest game 
in a losing cause at Newark last 
November. UConn will be out for 
their fifth straight over the Red- 
men at Memorial Stadium. 

Last fall we pushed Rhode Is- 
land all over Meade Field and 
lost 24-8. The Rams wiil be here 
to try and spoil another home- 
coming. 

Northeastern plays host to us 
for the first time in four years. 
Two years back the flu epidemic 
postponed the game. BU appears 
at Alumni Field this year on Oc- 
tober 31st. If the Terriers don't 
lose ten fumbles again, it could 
be a rough afternoon. 

Brandeis will bank their of- 
fense on the Dave Walker to Mike 
Long passing combination. It did- 
n't work at Gordon Field last 
October, and it won't work here 



come November. 

New Hampshire hosts the Red- 
men at Cowell Stadium on Yan- 
kee Conference Day. We squeezed 
out a 25-24 count a year sgo. 
This season it shouldn't be as 
close. 

YsCon Outlook 
UConn made it three in a row 
last season. The Huskies havent 
lost a conference game since 
since 1955. With a fine frosh team 
moving up, chances are they 
won't lose one this year. 

Maine hopes to give the Storrs- 
men a run for their money. Hal 
Westerman has eighteen letter- 
men and eight starters from last 
year's squad back in tow. All 
signs are pointed towards Octo- 
ber 17th when the two titans 
clash. 

Rhode Island has the entire 
backfield returning, but the Rams 
forward wall is weak. Herb 
Mack's club had 203 points scored 
on them in eight outings last 
fall. 

Vermont is out oi contention 
with only one confe. nee game 
booked. 

Up in Durham, New Hamp- 
shire's Blue Wildcats are hoping 
for better luck. They haven't won 
a conference game in the past 
two years. 

Stronger Conference 
In summary, the conference 
looks stronger once again this 
year. Look for UConn and Maine 
to battle for the title. 

Below the two leaders just 
about anything could happen. The 
Redmen could fare well provided 
they weather their first four 
games. Roy Pearson, Rhode Is- 
land's one-man-gaig, has the 
ability to offset a weak line. New 
Hampshire has a flock of letter- 
men, but a lack of over all depth. 
Vermont won't be in the running 
for the Beanpot till they play 
four games against conference 
foes That will he three years

their first triangular meet of the season, to be held on October 3. 



Cross-Country 
Course will Be 
Less Confusing 

by Joe Lipchitz 

This year's cross-country team 
will be captained by two return- 
ing senior lettermen, Jim Keelon 
and Dick Atkinson. 

Coach Footrick will have five 
returning veterans and seven 
sopohomores who proved them- 
selves to be at least adequate last 
fall. Practice has begun with only 
one change in the course; the big 
loop around lovers lane will be 
circled twice and the steep Baker 
hill only once. This change has 
been made with the hope of ob- 
taining a- less confusing course 
and the use of fewer road guides. 
This may or may not appear a 
certain New England coach who 
took the trouble to express his 
views on the subject.

No UMass Band To Play 

by DON CROTEAU '61, Managing Editor 

This Saturday, for the first time in many years, the UMass football team will play a 
home game without the -support of the Redmen Marching Band or the Precisionettes be- 
cause of administrative difficulties. 

The two main problems which face these organizations are the conflict between 
Joseph Contino's position as Director of Bands and the administrative ruling that limits

The annual Frosh picnic,

The picnic is an informal 
affair which helps to familiarize 
the freshmen with the CA and

throughout the year. 

There will be several informal 
games and accordian music. A 
picnic supper will also be served.

tian Association. He will work 
with the student leaders and 
major committees of this organi- 
zation in planning and executing 
its entire program. He will also 
assist Rev. Albert L. Seely in 
counselling and advising individ- 
ual students on campus. 

Mr. Claussen was born in Chi- 
cago and graduated from De- 
Pauw University in 1955. Be- 
tween his second and third year 
at Yale, he served as Youth As- 
sociate of the Evangelical and 
Reformed Church. 

Mr. Ricci also announced two 
new part time appointments. As- 
sociated with Rev. Seely will be 
Rev. J. Lynn Springer, Univer- 
sity Pastor at the First Congre- 
gational Church, who has re- 
placed Rev. David E. Moore, and 
Rev. Jere S. Berger, Episcopal 
Chaplain, who has replaced Rev. 
and Mrs. Ivan T. Kaufman. Mr. 



A step forward in student 
faculty relations has taken place 
at the University. At the first 
meeting of the Student Senate 
Wednesday night in the S.U. 
Senate President Robert Zelis '60 
announced that nine University 
committees will have students on 
their roster this fall. 

"I feel that it is a great step 
forward in expanding the stu- 
dent's role in university policy 
formation," continued Zelis. 

When asked for a comment, 
Provost McCune said, "We were 
glad to see that many of our 
recommendations have been 
taken. We think students can 
play a good role in policy forma- 
tion. The future of this policy 
depends on how responsible the 
students are. I believe the stu- 
dets can and will do a competent 
job." 

The students must be appointed 
by President Mather with the 
recommendation of the Senate 
President. All candidates for 
these committees are invited to 
consult with Bob Zelis. 

Also considered were motions 
calling for an amendment to the 
Student Government Association 
Constitution and a recommenda- 
tion that the Dining Commons 
weekly publish a menu on the 
Friday of the preceding week. 

The former motion calls for 



the reapportioning of the number 
of senators. If passed by the 
Constitutional Convention in its 
present form, this amendment 
would change the ratio of one 
senator per 150 students to one 
senator per 225 students in res- 
idential areas; i.e. dormitories, 
fraternities, sororities, commu- 
ters, and married students. 

A residential area would be 
entitled to an additional senator 
for every additional 150 students. 
The maximum number of sena- 
tors allowed for one residential 
area would be six for any num- 
ber of students exceeding 824. 

In setting forth the Commons 
recommendation, Sen. Joe Patten 
'61 said that it had been sug- 
gested to him by quite a few 
students currently eating off 
campus that the Commons 
should publish a weekly menu. 
Added Senator Patten, "There 
should be no trouble in that the 
Commons works from a master 
menu." 

In taking a stand against the 
proposal Senator Rob Armstrong 
'60 said, "Printing menus in 
advance will cause more people 
to eat there (in the Commons). 
This might cause a person who 
owns a meal ticket to be left 
out." Senator H. Warren Hender- 
son '61 pointed out, however, 
that a great deal of the profit 




RICHARD DRAPER '60 



that the Commons shows comes 
from people who come in and 
buy meals. The recommendation 
was sent to the Senate Service 
Committee for further study. 

The Senate was reminded that 
elections will take place in three 
weeks. Applications will be 
available in the Office of the 
Dean of Men within two weeks. 
The following is a list of 
University Committees prepared 
to accept student candidates for 
this year: 

Advisory Board to Foreign Stu- 
dents 
Audio-Visual Council 
Calendar Coordinating Board 
Discipline Board 
Fine Arts Council 
Health Council 
Library Committee

wouldn't be here now." 

In his opinion the administra- 
tion had formerly felt that the 
students themselves could not 
completely control the directing 
of the bands but has now realized 
that it is necessary for a trained 
faculty member to lead the pro- 
gram. 

This was accomplished. through 
the efforts of Dick Draper '60 
Manager of the Marching Band, 
and Don Witkoski, '60, Preci- 
sionette Drillmaster, who ap- 
proached the administration on 
the problem by stressing the im- 
portance of Contino in the bands' 
program. According to Draper 
the Bands "can't get along with- 
out him." 

Because of this, Contino has 
consented to return as Director 
on the assumption that a solution 
will he worked out. 

The other difficulty facing the 
University Bands is the manner 
in which they receive their oper- 
ating funds. 

Last year, when the Senate cut 
their budget, precipitating Con- 
tino's tentative resignation, be- 
cause of a "vote of no confl- 
uence " the "uestion of a new 
system was raised. 

Contino in speaking for some 
new system, cited, that the Sen- 
ate assumes too tight a control 
over funds to the extent that 
"the senate controls you." He al- 
so accused the Senate of Splay- 
ing politics" which is in his opin- 
ion "unnecessary for student gov- 
ernment." 

Draper extends his sentiments 
with the statement: "What the 
Srtiate doesn't seem to realize is 
that the UMass Bands (Redman 
Rand, Concert Band, Precision- 
ettes and Dance Band) carry in 
their performances both here and 
throughout the State more favor- 
able publicity for the University 
than any other organization on 
campus and should act according- 
ly."

Where Lies The Blame... 

Like everyone else, the Collegian is 
pleased that Mr. Contino has agreed to re- 
turn as director of the University bands. We 
agree with him that any policy that would 
reduce him to the position of advisor is fool- 
hardy Mr. Contino is as much needed by his 
organization as a football coach is by his 
team. Yet, would the administration think ot 
having the football squad coached by the 
captain while Charlie O'Rourke served as an 

advisor? 

But the Collegian does not agree witn 
Mr. Contino's charges against the Senate. 
Unlike the football team, which receives its 
revenue from the sale of tickets and the Ath- 
letic Fund, the Marching Band and Preci- 
sionettes must depend on their support from 
the Student Activities Fund. When Mr. Con- 
tino complains that the Senate has too tight 
a control on money alloted to the Band, he 
is merely saving that the Senate is doing 
its job very well. For the legislators have 
not only a 'right but an obligation to keep 
tight control on the students' money, which 
they are entrusted to allot. The Marching 
Band has no more right than any other RSO 
organization to gain special privileges from 

the Senate. 

In the future, let's hope that an amicable 
solution to the Band's problems can be 
peached in the spring so that the students 
m« <mp it nerform on the football field in the 

fall. T - M ' 



A Student Must Question 

The raw material was tossed into the 
machine, twisted and ground, pressed and 
rolled, sanded and polished and out came the 
finished product. A i'reshman enters college 
and is confused and bewildered, pushed and 
pulled, glorified and humiliated and out 
comes a college graduate. The finished prod- 
uct may be twisted, mutilated, and com- 
pletely useless or perhaps even harmful to 
its prospective owner. This (of course, is not 
the desired end, but it is possible. It is equal- 
ly possible that a student might be graduated 
twisted and warped in his views on life and 
rtirely useless or more likely harmful in 
his relations with other people. 

The only inconsistency in this analogy is 
that the raw material has not control over 
its fate, while a college student should have 
full control over his development Are not 
his Ideas a composite of the Ideas of all those 

who have taught him? This is true of a poor 
student who accepts all and questions 
nothing. This type of student may graduate 
with an excellent academic average and still 
be entirely useless to himself, future employ- 
ers and acquaintances. He is incapable of 
thinking for himself. 

How may a studenf control his develop- 
ment? A student will receive the most from 
his education if he questions all ancTaccepts 
those ideas this questioning reveals to be 
valid. He derives from these ideas a belief 
and an outlook on life that will benefit him- 
If and all who come in contact with him in 
later life. K.B. 



Senator Powers' Life Story 

For its record size and the distinguished persona present, the 
testimonial dinner given recently in the Hotel Statler Hilton ballroom 
to Sen. John B. Powers, the first full-term Democratic president of our 
state Senate, will long be remembered in our political history. 

The occasion brings up the little-known, inspiring career of the 
senator, a man who always has shied away from personal testimonials 
save for a humble gathering of some 25 friends in a South Boston 
restauranf when he, a youth of 26, was first elected to the House in 
1938. 

The background of the story is best epitomized in two incidents 
about his mother, who died two years ago at the aage of 84. 

When she was an immigrant girl of 12 years she worked as a 
charwoman at the foot of Beacon Hill in the home of Dr. DeBlois. At 
the age of 82, at 1 o'clock in the morning, she came to the top of the 
hill to the Ashburton pi. headquarters to throw her arms around her 
son. 

It was the happiest moment of their lives, for it was September, 
1955, and he had just been nominated for mayor. 

The ascent has been long and hard, for the story of Powers is a 
Horatio Alger one. 

Powers' father, an engineer for the old Boston El, was killed in 
an accident on Thanksgiving Day, 1918, when the future Senator was 
a boy of eight. He was the youngest of four children. He became a 
breadwinner. He dug clams at $4 a barrel, sold seaworms, too, to 
fishermen at the Point. That was in the Summertime. 

Winters, he set pins (3 cents a string) in the school basement of 
old St. Eulalia's, now St. Bridget's. That was after school hours, and 
all day Saturdays. 

At age 14, after two years at English High (and he got all A's), 
he left to go to work. Another reason: He couldn't afford the uniform 
needed for drill, though he was then a leader, being captain of his 
freshman and sophomore baseball teams. 

In the depression years he became interested in social work and 
got a job under Walter McCarthy at City Hall. Pay: $18.20 a week. 

A bom speakerT opinion-former and leader, he helped others in 
campaigns, and saw public office as a means to help solve people's 
problems and meet their needs. 

So he ran for the House, one of 17 in the contest which included 
another fellow of the same name, E. J. Powers. He won handily, and 
will never forget it, for the next day came the famous hurricane of 
1938. 

On the hill he has risen steadily, as a Democratic leader in the 
House during former Gov. Herter's Speaker days and now as Senate 
President after being Democratic leader in the Senate for a record 
nine years. 

On the Hill, Powers has become distinguished for his ability as a 
debater, speaker, master of parliamentary procedure. Self-taught, he 
has spent at least an hour every night for years with books on govern- 
ment and administration. He is chairman of the national legislator's 
conference. 

On his office walls are inscribed pictures from many he has helped 
in public life, the late Gov. Dever. U.S. Sen. Kennedy, and many others. 

The proceeds from the dinner, at his wish, went to charities in 
which he has always been interested. 

A picture taken of him and his mother that happy morning in 
1955 is in a cabinet in his office. Nearby are inscribed pictures from 
Bishops Wright and Weldon. And just a few days ago the Cardinal 
sent a new picture of himself in his new robes. On it is inscribed: 
"Hon. and Mrs. John E. Powers and family, with love, blessings and 
abiding gratitude, Richard Cardinal Cushing." For the friendship has 
been life- long.

WHOM TO SEE 



The Band Controversy; 
Conflicting Viewpoints 

Editor's Note: Last June Mr. Richard Draper, 
Director of the Redmen Marching Band, and Mr. 
Donald Witkoski, DriUmaster of the Precisionettes, 
wrote Provost Shannon McCune concerning the res- 
ignation of Mr. Contino and the decision of the stu- 
dents in the Marching Band and Precisionettes not 
to perform without their director. 

Witkoski and Draper to McCune 

Dear Mr. McCune: 

After due consideration regarding the issues at 
hand concerning the future of the University Bands, 
we feel that it is fair that you should be informed 
as to our opinions on this matter. 

You are probably now aware of the work that 
goes into planning and administering the programs 
of the Redman Marching Band and Precisionettes. 
You are also aware that in the past we have de- 
pended on the more or less autonomous directorship 
of a man backed up by many years of formal edu- 
cation and nine years of actual experience in order 
to maintain and improve the high quality of the 
University Bands' programs. 

If, therefore, our director is reduced to the posi- 
tion of adviser of the University Bands, it is obvious 
that the technical skills involved, upon which we 
have relied so heavily, will be lost in our organiza- 
tions. Consequently, it our organizations are with- 
out this technical skill, and certainly we do not have 
it in our student leaders, we will not attempt to 
organize and train the groups. The task is too great 
for students to handle alone. 

It is our feeling that we should not perform on 
the football field or on the stage if our performance 
is bound to be less than is expected and especially, 
if our quality has to take a back seat to the very 
existance of the groups. 

Sincerely, 

Donald E. Witkoski 

Drillmaster, Precisionettes 

Richard A. Draper 

Manager, Redmen Marching Band

McCune to Witkoski and Draper 

Dear Mr. Witkoski and Mr. Draper: 

This letter is in reply to your letter of May 29th. 
I am sorry to have been delayed in sending a reply, 
but the busy Commencement activities interfered. 
I am taking the liberty of sending a copy of your 
letter with my reply to Mr. Robert Zelis, President 
of the Student Senate. 

In your letter you stress that the Director of the 
Marching Band and the Precisionettes was being 
"reduced" to the position of adviser of the Univer- 
sity Bands. We could get into a great deal of seman- 
tics here, but I think it is more important to stress 
that it is my view that it is time that the students 
of the University take some responsibility in these 
matters. I feel, myself, that there is no task in the 
field of student activities "too great for students to 
handle alone." Much depends upon what the stu- 
dents, themselves, feel they should have in reflec- 
tion of student concern and interest. 

The University Bands have been purposely 
among the Recognized Student Organizations of the 
University and have been dependent for funds from 
the tax revenues of the Student Senate. For a num- 
ber of years the University has been helping the 
Bands by providing from our less-than-adequate 
teaching resources personnel to help in their prep- 
aration and their program. It is time, I feel, that 
the Bands and the Precisionettes begin to stand 
(and march) on their own two feet. The University 
is glad to consider as a part of the service load of 
an individual staff member the position of adviser, 
but it is not able, at this particular time, to provide 
a full-time director or his equivalent for these stu- 
dent activities. 

After conversations with Dean Cahill and others, 
the Colleges of Arts and Sciences and the Depart- 
ment of Music is considering that during the fall 
semester of 1989-60, a significant part of the serv- 
ice load of Mr. Contino will be devoted to the Uni- 
versity Bands. As the Department of Music expands 
its rurricular offerings in future years, the matter 
of service loads will be reassessed. 

What is the upshot of this situation? You say 
that you "should not perform on the football field 
or on the stage." Very well, you will not do so, but 
it is up to you rather than up to the University 
Administration as to whether you do this or not. We 
are not going to be put into a position of urging 
you to carry on a student extra-curricular activity 
against your desire. It seems obvious to me that 
through theM years we have evidently been trying 
to give you too much help. It is perhaps time for 
you to take more responsibilities yourselves. There- 
fore, I feel that, though it will be tragic in many 
respects not to have the Mai.«.hing Band and the 
Precisionettes perform nt a very high level or not 
perform nt all on our fields next year, this is some- 
thing for whirh the students, rather than the Uni- 
versity Administration, should be concerned. 

Sincerely yours,

(Dear Jruat u\uthv 



By Jerry Gallagher '62 

What is one of the main prob- 
lems on campus today? No room 
in the Hatch. The "campus lead- 
ers", in planning their "massive 
expansion program" have over- 
looked this facet. There is a way 
out! 

Double decker tables could be 
built. The only drawbacks are: 

(a) spilled coffee (resulting in 
scalded passerby) 

(b) dropped book (resulting in 
concusion of passerby) 

(c) un coordinated student (re- 
sulting in broken neck) 

(d) male dominance of lower 
seats (resulting in severe eye 
strain) 

Another solution is to put 
tables in the corridors, Braves 
and Squaws rooms, etc. This 
would add considerable atmos- 
phere (particularly in Braves 
and Squaws rooms). 

A third solution is to tear 
down the obsolete, dilapidated 
S.U. and build a larger one. 

Oh, yes, a few announcements! 

There are some corrections in 
the bus schedule as printed in 



Monday's Collegian. The last bus 
Friday leaves the woman's resi- 
dence area at 7:50 p.m. On Sa- 
turday the first bus leaves at 
1:10 p.m. 

The Chess Club will hold an 
organizational meeting on Mon- 
day, Sept. 21, in the S.U.— 7:30 
p.m. Everyone interested is in- 
vited to attend. 

Automobile registration will 
take place Tues., Sept. 22, at the 
Ticket Office, South Parking Lot 
for grads, seniors, juniors and 
specials from 7a.m. to 5 p.m. 
Everyone else will register on 
Wed., Sept. 23, same time and 
same place. 

There will be a dance tomor- 
row night, in the S.U. Ballroom 
from 8:00-12:00 p.m. Stag 35^, 
Drag 60*\ Skag 76e, etc. 

Don't forget the rally will 
start at 7:30 tonight behind the 
S.U. with a dance to follow from 
8:00 to 11:00 p.m. in the S.U. 
Ballroom. The evening will con- 
clude with the massacre of the 
entire Freshman Class, thus end- 
ing the evening on a festive note. 

Next Week — "The Perils of 
Prohibition."

Dear Freshmen, 

The upporclassmen are already familiar with my column, but I 
fed that I must tell you about it now. I am your "aunt" Ruthie. Hav- 
ing attended numerous colleges and universities for periods of up 
to two months, I feel that I am well acquainted with the problems of 
campus romance. This is what I am here for: to help you with any 
problems of a romantic nature that may arise while you are on cam- 
pus. 

Som e may say that I am a copy-cat of "Dear Abby." but I fee! 
that I am singularly unique in that 1 sera »• the prob- 

lems of which are quite different from those of ■ working girl. (This 
does not mean that hoys are excluded from the advice I render.) 

I'll be looking forward to hearing from you soon. Please address 
all Utters to 'Aunt Ruthie", care of The Collegian office, or drop a 
letter Under the office door. 

Bye for now, 
"Aunt Ruthie" 



Here are two sample letters which arrived too late to be printed 
in last year's paper. 



Dear Aunt Ruthie, 

I am a very mixed up young man. For the past few months I have 
have been dating two different girls, both of whom I like very much. 
My problem is that I don't know which of them I like better. Both 
have qualities which I prize very highly, but these qualities are dif- 
ferent in each girl. What should I do? 

"Bewildered Soph" 



Dear Readers, 

We are leaving this letter unanswered in hopes that you will 
help out this young man by writing in your solution to this problem. 

Sincerely, 
"Aunt Ruthie" 

Dear Aunt Ruthie, 

I am a freshman girl. Since the early part of this year I have 
been dating a senior. The week before I met him he broke off with his 
girlfriend at home. She has now written to him asking him to come 
home to see her. He is going down to see her this weekend and this 
has upset me very much. Aunt Ruthie, what shall I do? I like him 
very much and yet I realize that he likes this girl back home. 

Sincerely, 
"All-Shook" 



Dear "All-Shook", 

Stop shaking, honey. Graduation time is near. If the girl back 
home means more to him than you do, then you might as well start 
looking forward to your sophomore year; if not, then you can still 
look forward to your sophomore year anyway. Don't forget, also, that 
the summer will do wonders for your shaky nerves, See you in the 
fall. 

Sincerely, 
Aunt Ruthie

One Way To Get A 
College Education 



By JUDY DICKSTEIN '63 

From the day students enter 
this great institution of learning, 
they are faced with one problem: 
how to he a success at this busi- 
ness of acquiring a college edu- 
cation. Here are some helpful 
hints: 

(1) Appear to pay attention in 

class. Don't get the wrong idea; 
you dont have to pay attention, 
just give that general impres- 
sion. One favorite device is to 
um> lecture time to write letters. 
This will give the appearance 
that you are taking notes and 
will enable you to answer your 
letters sooner, too. 

(2) Develop an awareness of 
vocabulary. "Don't panic." You 
don't have to know- what they 
mean, just learn how to spell a 
few long, impressive words and 
display them neatly in essay 

questions. 

(3) Appear at ease. Watch the 
clock from the corner of your 
i ye, and he sure to hand your 
paper in first. Stroll casually up 
to the desk, smile, and say, "You 
had me worried — for a while!" 
A wist ruck by your confidence, 
the instructor won't even bother 
to correct your paper. 

If successful, you mighc em- 
ploy some automatic answering 
devices. In past day this was dis- 
dainfully known as "cheating," 
but now some favorfte methods 
may he publicly revealed: 

(1) Cribbinjr. Obsoletely known 
tfi parents as "making ponies." 
This involves bits of paper filled 
with answers supplied by a 
friend who took the same test 
earlier that day. Recently, this

Bands . . . 

[Continued from page 1) 

Robert Zelis, President of 'he 
Student Senate defending the 
Senate said yesterday: "Even if 
the Senate had given them what 
they wanted, they would not be in 
the Maine game this Saturday." 

As it stands now, the organiz- 
ers of the two organizations are 
shooting for the Delaware game 
for their first appearance. 

This is the length of time 
iccessary for organization and 
rehearsals before they can be 
ready. One of the difficulties they 
aie running into is the lack of 
personal contact with the fresh- 
men usually accomplished at ori- 
entation which was neglected 
th's year. 

Although the Redmen Band will 
not play at Alumni Field Satur- 
day, there will he a band repre- 
senting t'Mass. The Hadley High 
School Band is scheduled to ap- 
pear at half-time during the 
Maine ramr. They will not march, 
hut will play out on the field. 

The band will start practice 
on Monday. Draper "has invited 
all students interested in the 
musical or technical end to attend 
practice at 5 p.m. at Memorial 
Hall. 



form has been abandoned for 
more elaborate ones, such as 
cribbing on the shirt sitting in 
front of you, or, ideally, your 
own person. 

(2) Coalition, copartnership, 
or reciprocity. In this technique, 
used by two students with lim- 
ited study time, each learns half 
the material and, by ingenious 
signals, unselfishly shares his 
knowledge. If properly mastered, 
this system can be foolproof. 
How is the unsuspecting peda- 
gogue to know that when John 
scratches his ear, he is cueing 
Tom that Andrew Johnson was 
the seventeenth president of the 
United States, was a Unionist, 
succeeded Lincoln after his as- 
sassination, and tried to follow 
Lincoln's plan for reconstruc- 
tion ? 

(3) Duplication or reproduc- 
tion. Vulgarly referred to as 
"copying." Here at UMass, this 
has been rendered difficult and 
fairly impractical by a new style 
seating arrangement, whereby 
each student finds himself sur- 
rounded by empty chairs. The 
despondent student finds his last 
hopes dashed when it is an- 
nounced that different test book- 
lets will be distributed to stu- 
dents in alternate rows — hori- 
zontally AND vertically! Conse- 
quently, this has become a lost 
art, save among those students 
with 20-20 vision. 

(4) Play dumb. So you don't 
know the answer; don't despair. 
Ask the instructor leading ques- 
tions about the interpretation of 
th"! teat material. As a rule, it is 
impossible to clarify the ques- 
tion without giving a good-sized 
clue concerning the answer. Gen- 
erally, the kindhearted peda- 
gogue will feel guilty about 
phrasing the question so ob- 
scurely, especially when helpful 
colleagues chime in, "Yes, I was 
wondering about that also." 

You will notice that, in order 
to successfully execute most of 
these plots, a confederate is 
needed, so choose your friends 
wisely. And remember the words 
of the immortal someone who 
said, "United we pass; divided 
we flunk!" 



Air Force Has 
A New Book 

A new kind of book about the 
United States Air Force which 
has special significance for Air 
Force Reserve Officers Training 
Corps students has just been 
published by Military Publishing 
Institute, Inc., of New York City . 
It is being distributed nationally 
through college bookstores and 
Air Force Base Exchanges to be 
useu as a reference book. 

"The Air Force Blue Book" 
has been recommended to Air 
Science professors as supple- 
mentary reading for AFROTC 
units by Headquarters, AFROTC 
at Air University, Montgomery, 
Alabama. In its review of the 
book Headquarters, AFROTC 
noted that Thi; Blue Book's 
"selection of Air Force stories 
gives the reader an insight into 
the human aspects of Air Force 
life in a manner which is rarely 
achieved by a single text." 

A chapter on AFROTC itself 
is a feature of The Blue Book. 
The chapter discusses changes in 
the AFROTC curriculum and the 
AFROTC's place in the Air 
Force. 



NOTICE 

The Precisonettes ate back 
this year under the leadership 
of Don Witkoski. Their Brat 
practice will be held Friday, 
September 18, at 5 p.m., in the 
girls' drill team field. They will 
make their first appearance at 
the Delaware game, here on 
October 3. Besides appearing at 
all the home games, they will 
accompany the Redmen to U.N.H. 
and Delaware. 




The Hokkaido Bear 



A gift from the students of 
Hokkaido University, Japan to 
the students at UMass received 
a bronze plaque at a brief 
ceremony in the S.U. lobby 
yesterday. 

President Mather, Provost 
McCune, several 8.U. Adminis- 



trators and some student 
leaders greeted the Provost of 
Hokkaido University and wel- 
comed him to UMass. (Ed. 
Note: Watch future Collegian* 
for the historic story about 
this recent famous UMass 
legendary figure).

Until yesterday, the new wom- 
en dormitories Mary Lyon and 
Dwight lacked furniture for its 
main lounge. 

Wind, rain, and mud had pre- 
vented previous delivery of the 
furniture. When the girls re- 



turned from summer receas, they 
walkrd into an empty lounge. 

Now the lounge looks like a 
model room from the pages of 
a magazine. The orange, blue, 
and cocoa brown Danish furni- 
ture against pale green walls pro- 



vides a pleasant atmosphere for 
relaxation. 

Mrs. Pennington, housemother 
of Mary Lyon had "expected to 
be housemother of Van Meter" 
but says she is delighted with 
residing in her "lovely new dorm."

The American Theory of 
Church and State is the title of a 
y published hook authored 
Uy Dr. Loren P. Bath, professor 
of government at the University 
of Massachusetts. 

The book, published by the 
University of Florida press, for- 
mulates a comprehensive theory 
justifying the I e p a r a t i o n of 
church and state in America 
based upon political and social 
principles. As evidence, the vol- 
ume offers a systematic account 
of the origin of separation as an 
idea in England during the 17th 
century and of the application of 
the idea in the English-American 
colonies during the 18th and 19th 
centuries. The book also indicates 
the impact which U.S. Supreme 
Court decisions have had on 
church-state relations since 1940. 

From reviews of available 



of 



literature and an snalys 
American political thought and 
constitutional law, the details of 
church-state relations In America 
emerge in s new light in Che hook. 
Dr. Beth is professor of fovern- 
ment at the I n f. He re- 

ceived his <l" torate at the Uni- 
versity of ' o and has taught 
at Bradley University, Vander* 

bilt, Harding College, Boston 
University, the University of 
Florida, and the University of

UMASS FACES MAINE 
AT ALUMNI FIELD 



by VIN BASILE, '62 
Sports Editor 
The Redmen football team, 
'with sophomore John McCormick 
at the quarterback's slot will 
open its 1959 season against 
Maine on Alumni Field, tomor- 
row, afternoon, at 1:30. 

The clash with the Black Bears 
will be only the fifth encounter 
between these two Yankee Con- 
ference foes. Maine evened the 
series last year with a 19-6 vic- 
tory. 

Following almost thre« weeks 
of preseason drills, O'Rourke in- 
dicates that his starting team 
will be comprised of .one senior, 
eight juniors and two sophmores. 
O'Rourke has selected John Ga- 
zourian, a sophmore from Fitch- 
burg for the starting fullback's 
job. 

Other starters are ends Dave 
Swepson and John Burgess; 
tackles Dick Riley and Dick 
Thornton; guards Ben Fernan- 
dez and Jerry Cullen; center 
Vin Caputo; and halfbacks Jim- 
my Hickman and Billy Reynolds. 

Others who will see plenty of 
action are fullback Dick Hoss, 
halfback Tom Delnickas and 
tackle Carmen Scarpa. 

O'Rourke, who is starting his 
eighth season as football mentor, 



regards this year's team as one 
of the best in a long time. "For 
the first time in many years I 
feel we have the material and 
depth to be considered a real 
threat for the 'Bean Pot'," he re- 
cently stated in a poll taken of 
coaches from the six New Eng- 
land states. 

Maine will have nine letter- 
men in its starting lineup when 
it invades Amherst tomorrow. 
End Donald Desroches is the 
only sophomore who has been 
able to crack the veteran com- 
bination of seniors and juniors. 

Tomorrow's game will be 
closely watched by other con- 
ference foes as Maine, last 
year's runner-up and Massachu- 
setts, tabbed a "dark horse", are 
rated as strong challengers to 
end the TJConn dynasty. 



'The General' 




Sixty Candidates 
For Frosh Football 



E & S AWARD 

The E & S Campus Cleaners 
will once again present an out- 
standing UMass football player 
with a five dollar cleaning certi- 
ficate. 

As in the past the most out- 
standing Redmen gridster of 
every game will be given the 
prize. Two of last year's winners 
who will return this year are 
Jerry Cullen and Ralph Maloney. 



John McCormick of Belmont is 
Coach Charlie O'Rourke's choice 
for starting quarterback. A 
6'2", 205 lb. sophomore, McCor- 
mick has the coaching staff 
very enthused over his passing 
ability. 



The Freshmen football season 
was launched last Thursday, when 
sixty hopefuls turned out for the 
initial frosh practice. Coach Dick 
MacPherson was pleased with the 
turnout and invited all interested 
freshmen to try out for the team. 

Coach MacPherson, a graduate 
of Springfeld College, and a 
former member of the Univ. of 
Illinois coaching staff, replaces 
Noel Reebenacher as head coach 
of the freshmen squad. 

MacPherson will be assisted by 
line coach Lou Varrichione, one 
of last year's Redmen standouts, 
and Don Johnson, captain of the 
'55 UMass grid team. 



.Although it is too early for any 
prediction, "Mac" made it plain 
that he is sure the frosh have 
plenty of fire and determination. 

The freshmen will play five 
games this year, but will meet 
only one foe on home territory. 

The frosh will be paired against 
Boston University, Springfield 
College, the Univ. of Conn., and 
the Univ. of New Hampshire. 
Their one home game will be 
against Brown.

Charlie O'Rourke the head 
football coach here at the Uni- 
versity was one of the greatest 
halfbacks in the history of foot- 
ball at Boston College and is one 
of few New England athletes to 
win All-American honors on the 
gridiron. The famed "Thin Man" 
of the Heights will start his 
eighth season as Redmen head 
coach this Fall and will attempt 
one of the mo«t nrged schedules 
in recent years at the University. 

O'Rourke came to the Univer- 
sity of Massachusetts ia 1952 
after several seasons of playing 
both college and professional ball 
and coaching his favorite sport. 



In his first season as Redmen 
mentor O'Rourke produced the 
first winning football team at 
Massachusetts in seven years and 
the University's first little All- 
American in end Tony Chambers. 

Perhaps Charlie's greatest 
coaching achievement came in 
1954 when an underdog Massa- 
chusetts eleven upset highly 
ranked Harvard 13-7. But rather 
than take the credit himself he 
stated, "It was a team victory." 
Charlie used 22 piayers and as 
O'Rourke added, "They weren't to 
be denied." 

Charlie has a record of 18 vic- 
tories, 34 defeats, and 3 ties.

'Beer 9 Prevents 

Parched Throats 

Root Beer and Ginger Ale are the fraternities' answer to Presi- 
dent Mather's ban on alcoholic beverages. 

"Prohibition" parties, hold at Alpha Gamma Rho, TEP, and 
TKE last Saturday evening, were characterized by one fraternity 
man as "proof that the fraternity system is not solely a drinking 
Institationi ai loma seem to think." 

The parties were the result of Mather's recent ban on the use 
of alcoholic beverages at University social functions, on University 
property, and iri "any housing which accommodates students in resi- 
dence," Under this ruling the serving of alcoholic beverages at fra- 
ternities is forbidden. 

Reaction to the new type of party was varied. Some commented 
that they found the party to bo boring. A few stated that they "had 
never had so miserable a time al ■ fraternity party." 

Beverages were generally root beer, ginger ale, and punch. No 
alcoholic beverages were in evidence at any of the three houses 
having the Prohibition Parties. 

Many viewed the ban on drinking at fraternities as an attempt 
by President Mather to d e s tr oy the fraternities. One student com- 
mented that he thought drinking should be allowed in the fraternity 
houses and that "it should he up to the students to make their own 
rules." 

A girl who attended stated 'the people who didn't drink anyhow 
enjoyed it. The people who did drink had a miserable time." 

One fraternity man pointed nut that the Prohibition Parties were 
proof that fraternities "did not have to be only a barroom, but 
that they could make a significant contribution to campus life."

Charlie O'Rourke's Redmen opened what promises to be one of 
their most successful seasons in recent years, when they defeated fa- 
vored Maine. 21-16, Saturday at jam-packed Alumni Field. 

The Redmen, who trailed Maine throughout most of the game, 
rallied for eight points in the third quarter and thirteen more in the 
final frame to clinch the UMass victory.

seemed like a repeat of previous 
UMass elevens. Penalties and 
bad breaks gave the Black Bears 
a seven point lead when the buz- 
zer sounded the end of the half. 

The Redmen's first TD came 
when junior Bill McKenna 
caught what was intended to be 
a McCormick to Harrington pass. 
Harrington bobbled the ball, and 
McKenna who was nearh y, 
nabbed the ball in the air and, 
with an open field ahead gal- 
loped to pay dirt. 

Tom Delnickas carried the ball 
over for the two points after 
and the scoreboard read 1< 

Delnickas opened the fourth 



quarter with a TD to climax a 
twenty-six yard pass play from 
quarterhack John McCormick. 

McCormick carried for the two 
extra points but was stopped 
just short of the line. 

With veteran John Conway 
replacing McCormick at the 
lot's spot, the Redmen began 
sixty-six yard march which was 
climaxed by sophomore halfback 
Billy Reynold's thirty-four yard 
touchdown run. 

The march, the longest UMass 
ground attack of the afternoon 
saw Reynolds and Roger Hen- 
venuti alternating as the ball 
carriers.

Harvard Speaks 
To The Forlorn 

by CLAUDE WELCH, Harvard f>l 

Editor's Note: the opinions expressed in this 
column are DEFINITELY NOT the opin- 
ions of the Massachusetts Collegian. 

For 324 years, Harvard men have been busily 
constructing a myth about themselves (and their 
college). Thej have made an ivory tower second to 
Done in the nation— and are proud of it. Those mak- 
ing the pilgrimage eastward this weekend will 
tin.l Harvard a Strang.- place, libertine in some 
respects, merely exciting in others 

Take liquor, for example. Students may keep 
any number of bottles in their rooms, legally. Wom- 
en can stay in men's rooms Until 9 p.m. on football 
Saturdays, midnight on other Saturdays of the 
year. Cuts, for all students, are unlimited. 

But all is not so blissful. Liquor is banned from 
Harvard Stadium; and by an informal agreement 
among the students', cheering is minimal and even 
non-existent. There is no rah-rah at Harvard, ex- 
cept among a few uninitiated freshmen. The Hai*- 
vard men seem to think themselves above such en- 
deavors. 

It is easy to see that a football weekend away 
from Amherst can be a great delight. For those 
who journey to Cambridge, hern is a short guide of 
places to go and things to see. 

First reminder: Harvard is Jam-packed in the 

middle of a thriving city. As a result, there are NO 
parking places within a mile or two, no pleasant 
grassy areas, no relief from the noise of the sub- 
way. The first landmark is Harvard Square — crowd- 
ed, dirty, packed with jaywalking students in their 
Harris tweed outfits. (The large pockets prove 
convenient for plastic flasks which can be hidden 
behind football pro B*). 

To reach the Stadium, merely follow the crowds 
from the Square, over the Charles River and into 
the horseshoe-shaped structure. I v occupies the 

east side, facing Into the sun, but not freezing like 
the poor men of Harvard. 

For night-time entertainment, the big city of 
Boston is eight minutes and twenty cents away via 
subway; downtown nightspots range from expen- 
sive to more expensive. Since Harvard classes do 
not start until September 28 — two days after the 
contest no dances will be held on campus. The 
tweedy fellow on th. next bar stool will be celebrat- 
ing the Harvard victory while you mourn the U- 
Mass loss; but all are friends once the l ' is 

!■ and the bottles uncapped.

REPORT: 
ON PROHIBITION 

by Lloyd J. Teran '62 

This weekend marked the first social weekend of the 
Fall, 1950 semester. Ii also marked the first time that a 
real observation could be made on "the effects of prohibi- 
tion on the student body of the University of Mass/' Having 
Scouted around campus, here's the way things look to me. 

Freshmen 

With the vast majority of fresh having never par- 
ticipated in campttS social activities, wet or dry, the decree 
simply means, that when they are allowed to attend such 
activities, they will never realize what, if anything, is miss- 
ing. Few freshmen attended beer parties while in high 
school anyway! 

In the case of veterans . . . well, every vet knows the 
meaning of the words "off limits." 

Upper Class Men 

By planning {food parties, social directors of frater- 
nities and sororities can eliminate the need for alcoholic 
beverages. This, I was able to observe myself Saturday 
night. If directors lack ideas, as one resort, I refer them to 
a fine book by Alexander Van Rensselaer, Party Fun and 
Games. 

A recent poll has shown that the majority of college 
students are not habitual alcoholics, and could, if necessary, 
curtail their intake of such beverages even off campus. As 
for the minority not mentioned . . . they would drink even 
if there were again national prohibition. 

Football Team 

The results of prohibition on the football team have al- 
ready been made obvious! 

Editor's Note — The opinions expressed i)i this column are entirely 
those of Mr. Teran, and do not necessarily reflect the opinions of the 

Massachusetts Collegian. 



ON BENTHAMISM 
IN BOSTON 

by JAMES A. M FBI NO '60 
Editor** Not* tht opinhne •ayrs ss ad in this column 

!,, thnsf of Mr. Merino, and do not nec- 
essarily reflfct the opinions of the Massachusetts 
Collegian. 

Jeremy Bentham was. as labeled *»J some his- 
torians, a "Philosophic Radical", one of a group of 
social and political thinkers of early nineteenth cen- 
tury England. Bentham formulated the basic prop- 
ositions of a socio-political system known as 
Utilitarianism. He attracted disciples who clarified 
his ideas, and who influenced the reform of the Poor 
Laura, which occurred during the 1830's. The re- 
forms w. re enacted on the idea that no 'Utility' 
attached to pauper relief in the form of doles; that 
the better system would be to make the necessity 
of accepting relief from the State degrading enough 
such that paupers would choose rather to take gain- 
ful employment than to be a financial burden upon 
the State. 

It may b- — I shall not set the following forth as 
a dogma, only as a thought — that certain legisla- 
tors in Boston do not agree as to the 'Utility' of 
our University. It may be that Boston's obstinance 
in refusing to grant reasonable raises to UMass 
faculty arises out of the idea that eventually most 
of the better faculty will be driven away; that after 
this, the competence of the general faculty being at 
a low, students will hesitate to enrol at UMass; 
that as a result, fewer and fewer citizens of the 
Commonwealth will put themselves in a position of 
being a financial burden upon the State. It may even 
occur that In the future the university administra- 
tion will finally reflect the apparent feelings of Bos- 
ton, and make attendance here more obnoxious with 
more intolerable petty regulation and restriction. 

It will make clear again, however, that I am not 
Betting forth the above proposition as indubitable 
fact, but only as humble speculation. 



/ / Lary said hello — 

by PAT WARD '61 

A girl named Mary < -ame up to me one day, smiled, and 
told me she was glad to see me. She asked me to play cards 
with her, and she won one game, and I won the other. 

There's nothing unusual about this, except that Mar.\ 
is a patient in the Northampton State Mental Hospital. Slu 
is a catatonic schizophrenic, and on every other visit there 
that I had made with the University student volunteer 
group, she had been sitting silent and motionless in a corner. 

The University volunteer group is one of several col- 
lege groups which go to the hospital twice a month. For a 
'rent many patients whose families have forgotten them, 

we are the only visitors. 

Talking to us is the onlj chance they have for ordinary 

conversation, since the ho i tal is overcrowded and under- 
staffed. You cannot realiz how much your visits mean to 
them until you have been th Me, and seen their faces light 
up when you come in. 

They like to sing. They like to play games. They enjoy 
planning holiday parties. But they like to talk the most. 
They are interested in your courses, and in hearing what 
you want to be. They will tell you about themselves. 

They need your help very badly, so won't you pay them 
at least <>ne visit this year? It will take only two hours of 
your time. 

The University group is making its first visit this year 
on Thursday, September 211h, at 6:00 p.m., leaving from 
Skinner parking lot. Transportation Is provided, and no 

orientation is i . . try. Contact Carol Clifford at Sigma 

Kappa for full her Information. 

Editor' tifoti In previous yea, tht Collegian has supported the 
activities of this group. Tin j/toi we again recognize their work and 
wish them good luck. Wt hopi that many of you will takt tnlvantage 
Of this tint nppart unity to visit the Northampton State Mental Hos- 
pital.

school spirit." 



Mary J. Coco Td, Springfield:

Martin Duhy '68, Cast Boston: 
"Half time was very boring 
without the appearance of these 

two University groups." 



Joan Ramm TO, Methuen: "The 

Precisionettes and the Univer-

pai t of the School tradition, and 
ought to appear." 





Volanda Rusxo, '60, Deerfirld: 
"It's a big disappointment not

For the benefit of all Frosh

91.1 on your radio dial, is the 
student voice of the University. 
It is owned and operated by the 
students. Although the station 
broadcasts on an FM frequency, 
those of you who have AM radios 
can hear WMUA over 790 because 
of specially installed converters

FASTER, FASTER! 

College enrollment continues to spiral upward. The need for 
more classrooms and more teachers grows more desperate daily. 
But classrooms, alas, do not spring up like mushrooms — nor 
teachers like May flies. So what must we do while we build more 
classrooms and train more teachers? We must get better use out 
of the classrooms and teachers we now have. That's what we 
must do. 

This column, normally a vehicle of good-humored foolery, 
will today forsake laughter to examine the crisis in higher 
education. My s ponso rs, the makers of Philip Morris Cigarettes, 
as bonny a hunch of tycoons as you will see in a month of Sun- 
days, have given cheerful consent to this departure. Oh, 
Splendid shape they are— the makers of Philip Morris, fond of 
home, mother, porridge, the Constitution and country fiddling! 
Twinkly and engaging they are, as full of joy, as brimming with 
goodness, as loaded with felicity as the cigarettes they bring 
you in two handy packages— the traditional soft pack and the 
crashproof flip-top box. 

How can we make better use of existing campus facilities? The 
answer cm be given in one woni — speedup! Speed up the educa- 
tional process— streamline courses. Eliminate frills. Sharpen. 
Shorten. Quicken. 




■ZSZikxX'' 



7kjmr6?/?te6trMWO&&<?r<f.......:. 



Following is a list of courses with suggested methods to speed 
up each one. 

PHYSICS— Eliminate slow neutrons. 

PSYCHOLOGY LAB-Tilt the mazes downhill. The white 
mice will run much faster. 

KNfJIXKKRINC- Make slide rules half as long. 

MUSIC Changs all tempos to allegro. (An added benefit 
BQ be gained from this suggestion is that once you speed up 
waltz time, campus proms will all be over by ten p.m. With 
students going home so early, romance will languish and mar- 
riage counsellors can be transferred to the Buildings and 
Groundfl Department. Also, houses now used for married 
students can be returned to the School of Animal Husbandry.) 

ALGEBRA— If X ahrays equals twenty-four, much time- 
consuming computation ean be eliminated. 

DENTISTRY Skip baby teeth- they fall out anyhow. 

P< )E THY — Amalgamate the classics. Like this: 

Hail to thee hlithe spirit 
Shoot if you must this old gray head 
You ain't nothin' hut a hound dog 
Smiling, tht boy ft H diad 

You see how simple it is? Perhaps you have some speedup 
ideas of your own. If so I'll thank you to keep them to your- 
selves. ©1959 Max Shulman

The Campus Beat 



bv JUDY DICKSTEIN *6.< 



It all began with Susan B. 
Anthony. In case you may still 
be ignorant it was she who was 
the major proponent of women's 
rights. Yet here at t .Mass this 
"unnatural selection" persists: 
the Senate has never had a wom- 
an president, and the female of 
the species has not written the 
Campus Beat for as long as I 
can ascertain. 

But now this era has come to 
an end, and a female has finally 
infiltrated the ranks of "Beat" 
reporters. 

To celebrate this advent, I'll 
begin today's column with the 
following notice for women stu- 
dents: 

The Dames Club, the social 
organization for student wives, 
will hold its first meeting of the 
season on Thursday, September 
24th at 8 p.m. in Skinner Hall. 
The program will feature a dis- 
play of plastic ware, and door 
prizes will be awarded. 

To show that I bear no grudge 
toward the Senate for Its preju- 
dice in excluding women from 
the top executive positions in 
past years, I'll comply with 
Secretary Bill Knowlton's request 
to make the following announce- 
ment: 

The attendance of all class 
officers is required at a meeting 
with the Senate for a Constitu- 
tional Convention at 7 p.m. 
Wednesday evening in the coun- 
cil chambers of the S.U. 



Wednesday evening will be a 
busy one at the Union. Also at 
7 p.m., but in the Hampden 
Room, there will be a meeting 
of the International Club. All 
members are requested to attend. 
New foreign students and others 
who are interested are welcome. 

As if someone has insidiously 
determined to have all students 
in the Union Wednesday even- 
ing, there is still another meet- 
ing to absorb those remaining 
students who optimistically 
thought they would have free 
time to sit and socailize in the 
Hatch. 

The first regular meeting of 
the Orthodox Club will be held 
on Wednesday, September 23rd, 
at 7:30 p.m. in the Student Un- 
ion. Freshmen as well as upper- 
classmen are urged to attend. 

For those commuters who com- 
mute at the time most commut- 
ers commute and are not busy 
commuting at the time, there 
will be a chance to meet other 
commuters (who are not busy 
commuting) at the first meeting 
of the Commuters Club Thurs- 
day morning at 11 o'clock in the 
Nantucket Room in the Union. 
New officers will be elected. 

The Geology Club will hold 
its meeting on the shores of the 
glacial Lake Hadley on Wednes- 
day September 23rd. Those in- 
terested, please contact Fernald 
Hall for the hour and exact loca- 
tion.

McCormick, Reynolds 
Head Late UMass Rally 

(Continued from page 1) 
Conway kicked the conversion 



and the Redmen were in control 
for the rest of the game. 

The first Maine tally came 
late ir the first quarter. The 
Redmen were deep in their own 
territory and Jimmy Hickman 
went back to punt. The ball, 
however, did not get into the air 
but instead hit a UMass lineman 
and rolled back to the six yard 
line. The Bears scored two plays 
later when quarterback Manch 
Wheeler went over from the one. 
This was followed by Arthur 
Miles extra point kick. 

In the third quarter a UMass 
fumble gave Maine the ball on 
the Redmen twenty. Miles then 
kicked a field goal and the Bears 
were ahead eleven to nothing. 

Later in the same period, a 
twenty-five yard pass play from 
Wheeler to end Dale Hanson 
gave Maine its final score of the 
day. 

At this point Maine was lead- 
ing sixteen to nothing.

able. 

However, a few weak spots 
could be noticed in the pass de- 
fense.

BILL REYNOLDS 




TOM DELNICKAS 



The Redmen's determination to 
win was summed up by Coach 
O'Rourke when asked what he 
thought about the victory. 
"They're just a bunch of guys 
that wouldn't quit. They don't 
have 'quit' in their vocabulary." 
FOR THE RECORD 

Penalties hampered both 
teams. In the first half the Red- 
men were penalized five times 
for illegal use of hands. This 
gave them a total losage of 
seventy-five yards. 

Maine was penalized eighty 
yards for penalties resulting 
from illegal use of the hands, 
roughing the kicker, unsports- 
manlike conduct, and delay of 
the game. 

Defensively UMass looked 
good. The line composed of Fer- 



Vin Caputo, the starting cen- 
ter played a great game defen- 
sively. 

Sophomores Carmen Scarpa, 
Ed Forbush, John Kozaka, and 
Dave Harrington look like fine 
prospects for future UMass grid 
teams. 

Sophomore quarterback John 
McCormick gave a grand demon- 
stration of his passing skill, 
while veteran play-caller Jack 
Conway showed his adeptness in 
spearheading the R e d m e n's 
ground assault. 

Halfbacks Benvenuti, Delnick- 
as, Reynolds, and Hickman, and 
fullbacks Hoss and Gazourin all 
ran well. 

The victory, UMass' third in 
five games against the Black 
Bears from Orono, now brings 
the Yankee Conference "Bean 
Pot" a step closer. 

Connecticut is still the team 
to fear, but Coach Charlie 
O'Rourke and his boys have 
brought a little ray of hope to 
this little town.

Shown above is the bleak outlook that faced UMass supporters 
late in the third quarter of Saturday's football game against Maine. 
The Redmen, at one point in the third quarter down 16-0, had come 
back with two touchdown* to within two points of their opponent*. 



It Was One Upset After Another 




Above is shown an example of the excellent defense exhibited by the Redmen during Saturday's game 
against Maine. Here a Maine back is smothered by several UMass players, including halfback Ron 
Sabourin (12). Coming in from the distance to deliver the coup de grace is tackle Dick Thornton <71).

roared bark to their first opening 
day win in four years, 21-16. 

The depth of the Redman for- 
ward wall, a point that has been 
sorely missed in recent years, 
served notice that we will be a 
team to reckon with in Beanpot 
play. 

Four future opponents raised

offense. Rhode Island nipped 
Northeastern 8-6, and Ithaca 
(NY) College buried Brandeis

Harvard looms next as the two 
teams clash in the vast stadium. 
Based on the comeback victqry 
Saturday, a large contingent of 
UMass supporter's is expected to 
make the trek to Cambridge. 
With a victory under their belts 
and the support of the school be- 
hind them, the squad will defi- 
nitely be up for the game. Per- 
haps another 1954 is in the mak- 
ing. 

Odds and Ends 

The coach of the champion 
Montreal Canadiens figures hip 
team can be as good as last year. 
Toe Blake welcomed 56 players to 
camp shortly after signing an un- 
precedented three-year contract 
with the National Hockey League 
team. Last year Les Canadiens 
broke their own scoring record 
with 258 goals while winning 39 
games. The second place team 
was nine full games behind them. 
Says Blake, "I don't see any rea- 
son why we shouldn't do just as 
good as last year if not better." 

Two former cage greats are 
among those named to the Nai- 
smith Memorial Basketball Hall 
of Fame at Springfield College, 
which is now under construction. 
They are former Stanford All 
American Hank Luisetti, who 
popularized basketball's moat 
potent weapon — the one hand 
jump shot; and George Mikan, 
Mr. Basketball of DePaul and 
Minneapolis Laker fame. 



Although the time was short, the Redmen were not through. 
They succeeded in scoring again to provide their fans with a major 
upset of the YanCon season. The final score, shown above, is all the 
impetus needed to charge up the Kedmen for their game agalnat 
Har'.ard this Saturday.

S.U.G. Board Bans 
Breakfast Blare 

by ALAN FINKELSTEIN '61 
Senate Reporter 

Rock and Roll music has officially been banned 
from the Hatch during the breakfast hour. The pol- 
icy went into effect this morning. 

At the first meeting of the SU Governing Board 
Bob Zelis '60 set forth a motion to have the juke 
box shut off between the hours of 7 and 8:30 a.m. 
will be piped into the Hatch over the intercom 
system. 

The motion was carried by general consent. In 
place of the juke box recordings light classical m us it- 
will be piped into the Hatch over the intercom sys- 
tem. 

"Many people complained about rock and roll 
during breakfast. They claimed that they could not 
enjoy their meal with rock and roll blasting in their 
ears," said Flo Steinberg '60, Motarboard's rep- 
resentative on the SUG Board. 

Made up of leading students and faculty advi- 
sors, the SUG Board defines the 
general policy for the building. 

The Hatch juke box is owned 
by a private person from North- 
ampton who gives 50% of the 
profits to the University, which 
reportedly amounts to an income 
of $2,400 annually for the Univer- 
sity. 




The workmen shown are making pipe-holes in the lawn in front of 
the SU. Poster stands, such as the one in the right foreground, may 
be put in these holes with the permission of Mrs. Montgomery in 
the Calendar office. With Student Senate elections coming up, it is 
expected that these holes will be quite in demand. No poster.-; may 
be put in the lawn, so get your post -hole now.

Boston Busses Set 
To Roll Saturday 

Through bus service between Amherst and Bos- 
ton is scheduled to start this Saturday morning at 
9 a.m. The Peter Pan Bus Co. of Springfield an- 
nounced yesterday that the Department of Public 
Utilities had approved their application requesting 
such an extension of service. 

Previously, busses from Boston ran only as far 
as Northampton. The new series will start just in 
time to give students round trip transportation to 
the football game between Harvard and the Uni- 
versity. 

The bus will pick up and discharge passengers 
at the Student Union daily. Students who want to 
take the bus are advised to use the S.U. exit next 
to the Post Office. 

Starting Friday tickets will be on sale at the 
lobby counter in the SU. The price will be approxi- 
mately $4.00 each way. A book of ten commuter 
tickets which must be used within a period of thirty 
days will be made available at 



RSO Commences Sixth Year 
As Committee To President 



Mr. William Scott, SU director 
stated, "This is a trial run. It re- 
mains to be seen how this policy 
will work out." 

When asked what effect this 
new policy would have on revenue 
Mr, Scott sbM, "We eannot tell 
as yet. The heavy playing hours 
are not affected, however." 

Senator Joe Patten '61 has been 
working on this problem for the 
past year. Last year he suggested 
in the Senate that classical and 
light classical records be sub- 
stituted for Rock and Roll in Hit 
juke box. 

The cost of replacing all the 
records was prohibitive, but some 
new ones were put in as a com- 
primise measure. Currently a poll 
is being taken to find out how- 
well these records have fared in 
competition with the "popular" 
rock and roll records of the day. 



The Committee on Recog- 
nized Student Organizations, 
known familiarly to old faces on 
campus as the R.S.O., acts as an 
advisory and regulatory com- 
mittee to the President of the 
University on all extra-curricu- 
lar activities, excluding those of 
fraternities, sororities and athle- 
tics. 

R.S.O., implemented by Presi- 
dent Mather, while acting as 
provost on July 1, 1954, is com- 
prised of 175 recognized campus 
organizations. They are grouped 
under the categories of publica- 
tions, dorms, honorary societies, 
musical, professional interest, 
social, certain religious groups 
and student government. Each 
of these organizations has a stu- 
dent manager or treasurer who 
looks for advice to the Assistant 
Director- Student Activities, Mr. 
Edward Buck. 

No student organization, un- 
less recognized, is permitted the 
use of university facilities with 



by CAROL ZANGKILLI '62 

out the sanction of R.S.O. 

The membership of the R.S.O. 
Committee consists of adminis- 
tration, faculty and students. 
The students who arc in a ma- 
jority ratio, are recommended 
by the president of the Student 
Senate and like the administra- 
tion and facu v are named by 
the President of the University. 

The Committee meets at var- 
ious interval- throughout the 




ED MUCK 



year to discuss matters pertain- 
ing to student organizations. It 
passes on the Constitution of all 
new student organizations and 
all changes in these constitu- 
tions. However, R.S.O. does not 
dictate policies or financial op- 
erations of any member group. 

A.nvor.g tHo vther operate, ns 

which it supervises are the for- 
mation of new organizations, 
their membership, election of of- 
ficers and financial procedure. 

The Committee on R.S.O.. lo- 
cated in the Student Activities 
office, also provides banking, 
book-keeping and auditing ser- 
vices for student organizations 
under the direction of Supervi- 
sor of R.S.O. Accounts, Mrs. 
Elizabeth Versailles. Mrs. Dona 
Mennella serves as office secre- 
tary. 

Mr. Buck and these members 
of his staff offer counsel on plan- 
ning, budgeting, purchasing and 
other aspects of the affairs of

a savings of 30%. 
Tickets will be transferable so 
that a group will be able to take 
advantage of these savings. 

"We know that the proposed 
service is needed in the interest 
of the students at the Univer- 
sity. One of the best assets of 
any community is good transpor- 
tation facilities. It is our inter- 
est to provide good transporta- 
tion for the students of the Uni- 
versity and the town of Am- 
herst," said Peter Picknelly Jr., 
president of the Company. 

This service has been brought 
about mainly through the efforts 
of the Student Senate. LaM Apr it 
a bill was introduced into the 
Senate by Bob Armstrong '60 
calling for Senate support of the 
petition to the Department of 
Public Utilities from the Peter 
Pah Bus Lines to make such 
service available. The Senate 
passed the bill unanimously. 

On Friday April 24, a group 
of approximately fifty students 
led by Bob Zelis '60 President of 
the Student Senate travelled to 
a hearing in Boston in order to 
go on record as being in favor 
of the proposed service. 

Zelis, in speaking for the ser- 
vice, said, "With the University 
expanding this bus service is not 
only a convenience but a neces-

Trustees Formally Accept 
Dr. Mather's Resignation 

President Jean Paul Mather's resignation from the University of 
Massachusetts has been accepted by the Board of Trustees. Following 
is the text of the announcement by the Board of Trustees: 

Jean |Paul Mather, Fourteenth President of the University o{ 
Massachusetts, has served in that office with high distinction and 
great dedication for more than five of the most crucial years in the 
University's history. 

He has during that half-decade raised the institution in enroll- 
ment, curriculum, faculty and staff, and research to a position in the 
first rank of universities performing the highest public service to the 
nation's youth and citizenry at large. 

Ilia selfless devotion to the task of championing the principles 

underlying the whole concept of public higher education have had 

atrong impact on the thinking of educators throughout the great 
American community. 

He has shown the courage of pioneers in the way he has given 
direction to educational aims and aspirations in this Commonwealth 
and has shown a sense of high responsibility in maintaining that 
direction for the benefit of the Commonwealth's youth. 

The Board of Trustees, faced with the voluntary and irrevocable 
resignation of the President, effective on or before June 30, 1960, 
accepts hia decision hut only with the greatest regret; for it is the 
conviction of this Board that the Commonwealth of Massachusetts 
has lost an educator humanitarian whose career will he a determinant 
in the shaping of the future of education.

Psychiatrist Leaves Here; 
Effective October First 

It is perhaps unfortunate that many of us will be unable to make 
the acquaintance of Dr. Vaughn, the University psychiatrist, who is 
leaving us as of October 1st. 

A quiet, firm person, who minces no words, Dr. Vaughn did his 
undergraduate studies at the University of Michigan after which he 
received bis Masters at Birmingham Southern. From there he went 
to the Universtiy of Alabama and UCLA for further graduate work. 

He came to us from the Massachusetts Division of Mental Hy- 
giene at the iequest of that body and the Administration for two 
reasons; one being a desire for research and the other the compile- 
ment of a report to the Division of Mental Hygiene on the need of 
a psychiatrist. 

It is interesting to note that there are only six fully maintained 
psychiatrists on the University level in the entire country. Asked 
what he thought of this situation, Dr. Vaughn, replied that clinical 
work of this sort is essential to this type of community. 

Some of the commoner problems with which Dr. Vaughn is con- 
fronted are, roommates, consistent lateness, depressions, marital dif- 
ficulty, panic over exams, discipline and social adjustment. However, 
he is very impressed with the sense of responsibility on the part of 
his patients, and found them "fairly well motivated." 

After October 1st, he will be associated with Boston University 
and the Boston State Hospital in a full-time research program for a 
period of two years. He will also aid in a training program for men- 
tal hospital attendants — a much needed innovation. 

It is with regret that we see Dr. Vaughn leave, but all extend 
best wishes for him in his new position.

DANGER: 

Use Caution 



U.S. VIEWS and WORLD RETOR1 ^* , lJocro^n.^. 



At present the United States is in a 
rather precarious situation involving Rus- 
sian politics. 

Soviet Premier Khrushchev, in his ad- 
dress to the United Nations, presented a 
Four Year Plan of Disarmament which he 
said will eventually bring about world peace 
It would be foolish not to study the proposal, 
for the neutral nations of the world would 
accuse the United States of forestalling set- 
tlements of peace, though it is our primary 

concern. 

The Communists, however, are infamous 
for their revision of agreements to suit their 
own purposes. This was evident at the Yalta 
conference in 1945. 

Instead of the restoration of freely 
elected democratic regimes in central and 
southern Europe which had previously been 
decided upon by the Big Three, Stalin and 
his foreign minister, Molotov. interpreted 
the agreements and such words as "democ- 
racy" exclusively in terms of Communist 
ideology. Hungary and Bulgaria were forced 
to make territorial concessions and pay rep- 
arations to Russia. By the time the treaties 
were signed in 1947, the original agreements 
had been deomlished and these countries 
were well on their way to Communist dom- 
ination. 

It is therefore incomprehensible that we 
could even consider political coexistence with 
the Soviet Union if the Four Year Disarma- 
ment Plan or a similar plan were adopted. 
Particularly since, in the past, Khrushchev 
has formally declared the United States a 
formidable enemy working against formula- 
tion of Russian policy. Such trust in the 
Soviet Union would be comparable to taking 
a bite of the poisoned apple. 

The State Department has advised cau- 
tious treatment of Khrushchev and his pro- 
posals while he is in this country. "Cautious 
treatment" was also exercised when the 
Communists agreed to take their forces out 
of Hungry .luring the 1956 revolt. Here 
again the Soviets revised an agreement for 
their own purposes. The troops returned, and 
today. Hungary is still enslaved. 

The free countries of the world must stop 
giving Russia second chances. The "cautious 
treatment" amounts to pampering. They 
must take the initiative to stand up and do 
something about her ever-present, threat of 

total dominance. 

A. S. 



This is your Washington corespondent, Drew Winchell, report- 
ing on Russia's latest god (spell backwards). Premier ...oh wha 
was his name? ... it was right on the tip of my tongue but I sp.t it 
out. Oh, yes ... Niki Crookshev, the Vitallis man. 

As our Red guest stepped from his Russian jet (he refused to 
fly by U.S. plane . . . can't *t*nd accidents), he was greeted by Presi- 
dent Eisenhower reading a welcoming address written by Herbert 
Fillbrick. Ike gave as reason for not memorizing the speech that his 
mind was concerned with other matters, such as the farm, Mamies 
diet, the previous day's golf score, et a!. 

Ride With "New Ike" 
Niki and the "new Ike" then rode away in the President's car I 
say the "new Ike" because he's been making derisions for himself 
of late . . . like switching from Mum to Veto. On the ride from the 
airport, Mamie was obligated to ride separately from Mrs. C- since 
the Red Lady took up the entire back seat of her car Meanwhile in 
Ike's car Niki kept complaining of a pain in his back. Ike thought the 
open top might have caused a draft hut later they found he was sit- 
ting on Ike's 5 iron. 

Later that day, Ike took him on a helicopter ride (to be seen 
next week on "Whirlibirds") over Washington residential areas. Dur- 
ing the tour, Niki asked, "Don't you have any barren or underpriv- 
ileged areas?" Ike answered quickly. "Of course! There you can see 
the homes of the UMass faculty and students . . . underprivileged and 
DRY." 

At the formal dinner that night, our honored guest appeared with- 
out tails and in a black business suit which was inexcusable since 
there is an HFC office within the sound of my voice. 

Blessing on Capitalists 
That Wednesday he appeared before the press club where he of- 
fered to swear on a Bible. The following day he also asked God's 
blessing on all capitalists. All this proves that Billy Graham's Mos- 
cow crusade was more successful than his tour of London's parks. 
Next week, Look magazine will feature Niki in, "Will His Religion 
Interfere With the Premiership," bj J. Kennedy. 

Veep Nixon was unable to attend any of the ceremonies because 
there was a county fair opening and the Washington Nats had a night 
game to play. 

That night, Ike and Mamie were entertained at the Russian Em- 
bassy. Niki again wore his business suit (it's a fetish with him) while 
his wife's outfit was very becoming ... an old tent donated by Oral 
Roberts. I don't want to say she vas large ... but everytime she 
got into a car the driver took her to the hospital. The menus at the 
dinner included "Smoked Hungarians," and "Baked Beria." Musical 
arrangements included Niki's favorite "Who Threw th$ Overalls in 
Comrade Stalin's Borsht". Ike's favorites were also played, "How Ya 
Gonna Keep Ezra Down on the Farm", "How Ya Gonna Keep Ike Off 
the Farm", and "Heart of My Heart'' by Dr. Paul Dudley White. 

While Niki was in New TOT*, 7300 police guarded him. Every- 
thing went along smoothly till he decided to visit the men's room and 
the 7300 tried to follow him. While in N.Y. he revealed he had received 
several letters inviting him to visit the U of M campus in hopes that 
he would grant a drinking amnesty while there. Walt Disney relin- 
quished some of his TV time in order that Niki could broadcast this 
UN message which was mistakenly listed in many papers as "Fan- 
tasyland". 

While in Hollywood, Nina Crookshev was given a toSr escorted by 
Frank Sinatra who kept calling her, "Mother." Marilyn Monroe, on 
t one day furlough from the hospitals, was down to say hello for 
Arthur. Dean Martin was down, too . . . so they helped him up. 

This is Drew Winchell predicting: within one week after Niki's 
departure, Russia will announce that they've stolen the plans for a 
Bufferin.

A Fair Compromise 

i eaterday'a vote by the Student Union 
Governing Board seems to be a step in the 
right direction. The jukebox in the "Hatch" 
has been blaring Rock and Roll all day, every 
day Since the day the Union opened. It is 
time for something to be done about it.* 

Since there are many people who prefer 
this type of music to a softer line, a com- 
promise must be made somewhere. 

The decision by the Governing Board 
Seems to be such a compromise. No longer 
will students be subjected to loud rock and 
roll music during the early morning hours 
or Sunday mornings. These were the times 
at which loud music was most offensive. At 
the same time, rock and roll enthusiasts will 
not be deprived of their right to hear the 
music of their choice at a more reasonable 

hour.

KINGSTON TRIO 



by VERN PERO '63 

In recent years Americana bave become more 
and more fond of the form of entertainment provided 
by hifh fidelity equipment. The teenager huys 
quantities of single records, while the college stu- 
dent leans more toward long-playing. It is financial- 
ly necessary to the manufacturers of these albums, 
to produce a product to please the college-age con- 

.-* I « I 1 ■ * • I 

What will this consumer buy? 
For a long period, which we shall call a dry 
spelT, no single preference was put forth. Then, one 
,l:,v about two years ago, the people at Capitol 
R«onl quietly released an album of adapted and 
Interpretive folk music by a rising young vocal 
group known as the Kingston Trio. 

Presto, that was it! The lives of these three 
Mting entertainers has not been quite the same 
Binee To be sure they had not replaced Brubeck and 
Milt Jackson in the hearts of the Jazz ndvocate. 
Similarly they had not become the rage in the eyes 
of raneiers <>f Onaaildy and Munch or Legrand and 
ftostslsnstl. Instead they had struck a norm, a level 
of entertainment on which all record lovers could 
congregate Mid be happy. They sang together, on 
k.y. with a strict regard for harmony and other 
essentials O* good music. Their material had its 
foundation and basis in the folk music which is an 
important part <>f the heritage of this and of every 
other nation, it was almost universal in appeal and 
found f:.vor among all age groups, principally 
among the college-age "men and women of America. 
The members of the Kingston Trio do not con- 
sider themselves "folk singers" in the strictest sense 
of the word. A large number of the songs they sing 
are of that variety, but the boys adapt these and In 
doing so injeet a flavor which is really all their own. 
This explains why a large number of selections, 
having their basis in many different cultures, sound 
equally good when the Trio performs them. 

While the reason for their popularity does not 
lend Itself easily to analysis, the fact that they are 
popular cannot be denied by anyone. At one time 
th-y were rated in three national surveys as the 
most popular recording group of their type in the 
country. During the same period, nil three of the 
:ilhums which they have rerorded to date were ap- 
pearing 111 several lists Of the top ten record albums 
throughout the country. These three boys have be- 
come rich men. 

And no wonder they have become rich men. They 
are more enjoyable every time they find their way 
to your turntable. The Kingston Trio, The Kingston 
Trio from the Hungry i, and The Kingston Trio At 
hunt' all make for really fine listening.

The Campus Beat 



by ED HAMMOND '63 
and ERNIE MANDER '60 



Say Shad, did you ever take 
history? I have some problems 
due for tomorrow and I'm stuck. 
Yea Clod, when I was a fresh- 
man. I doubt if I can help. 
What's the problem? 

Just some multiple choice. 
Who sa ; d, "Let them eat cake 
Marie Antoinette or Betty 
Crocker?" 

The housemother came up 
when she heard the screams. 
While she was there I reminded 
her that the housemothers' 
bridge party has been postponed 
until October 14th. 

Clod, I've been worried about 
your future here at the univer- 
sity. You know, college even for 
engineers today isn't just learn- 
ing to Pasqual's triangle or 
Khrushchev's law. Aren't you in- 
terested in some of the activities 
being held this week? 
Like what, Shad ? 
Well, there's the Special Ev- 
ents Committee meeting in the 
Franklin Room of the Union to- 
morrow night at 7 p.m. which is 
open to everyone. 

How about that Index staff 
meeting in the Index office at 7 
p.m. tomorrow? 

I hate to miss that James 

Dean "Rebel Without A Cause" 

at 7 p.m. tomorrow in the Union. 

You can't go to everything, 

Shad. 

That's what worries me, Clod. 
I'm supposed to be at the Phi 
Eta Sigma meeting, also tomor- 
row night at 7 p.m., in the Nor- 
folk Room. All sophomore and 
junior members are invited to 
help plan the coming year's pro- 
gram. 

Is that the same as the APO ? 

No, Clod. APO is a national 

service fraternity on campus. 



They perform services like build- 
ing things. 

What, for instance? 

Well, they made that bridge 
over the brook by the football 
field and I think they also built 
Arnold and Baker. 

By the way Shad, I under- 
stand the record list at the SU 
lobby counter is missing. Prob- 
ably a student inadvertantly 
picked it up off the counter along 
with his books. I enjoy listening 
to records there so I hope every- 
one will check among their books 
for it. 

To get back to your future, 
Clod, the Redmen Band and Pre- 
cisionettes are in need of a 
movie-cameraman. If you're in- 
terested call Anne Reseigh at 
Arnold House. 

I used to have a Brownie at 
home, Shad. 

Well, then this camera busi- 
ness ought to interest you. 

Yea, I used to wait outside 
school till her troop came out 
and . . . 

A short series of right jabs 
took care of him.

Fashion Fanfare 

by JUDY BLASKIE '60 

From head to toe, bright new color combinations and styles her- 
ald the i e t u i 11 of fall. Classics have more emphasis than ever. There 
are no drastic style changes. The shapes are back to normal, empha- 
sizing the waistline rather than forgetting its pi*esence. 

Sportswear is important, featuring the no-color look this season 
in loden green, camel, gold, brown and grey. The most popular skirt 
is the hip-stitched version in both solid colors and striking plaids. 
Skirts are still short, or should be, yet personal choice seems to be 
the guiding mark for hemlines on campus. Sweaters are all lengths 
this season. The long ones extend to the hipbone, many of them 
bulky, in knitted plaids or popcorn knits, usually worn over shirts. 
The long sweaters are often belted, with belts both wide and narrow, 
or for a newer touch tucked into the skirt and belted. The short 
sweater is waist length in both cardigans and pullovers. 

Shirts haven't changed. Most popular is the plain cotton tailored 
shirt featured in fall's smart new colors. An important look is the 
shirt with the tucked front to be worn for both casual and dressy 
occasions. For special dates a plain silk shirt w ; th neat tucks is 
always a perf ec t choice. 

A striking feature is being shown in two-piece coordinates and 
casual dresses, called by "Glamour" magazine, the "diplomatic look." 
This means any of the well-cut jackets, suits, or skirts in fabrics 
borrowed from the men. Braid outlines many of the sporty jackets. 
Jewelry often "makes" the otherwise plain, diplomatic styles. Huge, 
chunky bracelets, many with authentic oW coins in both gold and 
silver, the eagle pin, the maltese cross, golden star pins, or a bright 
golden /ooster are all popular supplements to any wardrobe. 

Fur fabrics are big news. Wild and wooley coats of orlon pile, 
warm, yet light and comfortable are a striking new look in colors of 
bright red, white and loden green. There are fur touches everywhere, 
especially raccoon, shown as collars of both poplin and camel coats. 
Fur again on collars and cuffs of dresses, small furry bags for even- 
ing wear, or warm gloves for cold winter days. 

The casual, sporty styles for fall seem designed especially for 
collegiate wear. Good shopping everyone!

Just as important as academic 
attainments to the student in the 
process of achieving a iiberal edu- 
cation are exti*a-curricular activi- 
ties. As a service to the student 
body, the Collegian offers the fol- 
lowing suggestions on how to be 
a success at extra-curricular ac- 
tivities. 

First of all, you must become 
a joiner. The very fact that you 
have the initiative to participate 
in a lot of clubs will automatical- 
ly raise your status. Then look 
around for the most prominent 
group on campus — and avoid it. 
You don't want to be their pawn: 
you want to be a leading figure 
in your own club. Enlist in some 
obscure society; if there are none 
to fill your needs, you may have 
to resort to organizing a new 
chapter of the National String- 
Saving Movement. 

There are several ways of se- 
curing members for your outfit. 
.Some people will join anything 
because a long string of member- 
ships will look impressive in the 
yearbook Other loyal friends will 
join because they know that 
you're stronger than they are, 
and "if ya can't beat 'em, join 
em!" In an emergency, members 
may be kidnapped or imported 
from other organizations. 

You now have an official char- 
ter from national headquarters, 
and the dean has recognized the 
existence of your group. As soon 
as you have democratically ap- 
pointed yourself dictator of the 
organization, start a drive for a 
"Save Your String" Day. This 
should impress the faculty with 
apparent zeal. From there on, 
it's all politicking. 



Now you are the well-known 
president of the University of 
Massachusetts Chapter of the Na- 
tional String-Saving Movement, 
with a faculty advisor and all! 
Don't let this success go to your 
head; keep up the indefatigable, 
work. 

The next big step is nominating 
yourself to Senate office. Select 
a comparatively insignificant 
position that no one wants any- 
how, and run unopposed. Accord- 
ing to the latest reports from the 
Bureau of Statistics, your chances 
of being elected are excellent. It 
is of little importance that your 
position is insignificant; nothing 
is too lowly for a beginning. As 
a member of the paramount 
Senate, you will have access to 
that top secret affair, the Senate 
meeting. Show your initiative. 
Make radical motions. Volunteer 
for committees. In no time at all, 
elections will roll around and you 
will find yourself elected to the 
presidency by an overwhelming 
majority of 50.001 percent. 

Now you are important. You 
are influential. You have the ex- 
clusive power to make vital deci- 
sions. You ABOLISH ALL EX- 
TRA-CURRICULAR ACTIVI- 
TIES! No one ever liked them in 
the first place; everyone agreed 
they took up too much study time. 
No one can possibly criticize a 
student for not belonging to any 
clubs; there are none! Every stu- 
dent can unobstructedly devote 
himself to obtaining a 4.0 aver- 
age, which will then become not 
only desirable, but the only cri- 
teria for BUceett and esteem. The 
gang will ove you. Then, and 
only then, will you be a sucess 
at extra-curricular activities!

The parachute is then activated 
at an altitude of 2,000 feet above 
the ground, with no opening 
shock, and the jumper slowly 
descends to the ground. The land- 
ing is equivalent to jumping from 
a chair two feet high. 

This is a sport for men and

IT'S 

UP FRONT 





As sure as little apples, Newton knew that what goes up must come down. 



But when it comes down to a 
really pleasurable filter ciga- 
rette, it's what goes up— in front 
of the filter, that is— that makes 
the difference! 

And there's where Winston 
had an inspired idea — Filter- 
Blend! Winston specially selects 
choice, mild tobaccos, then spe- 



cially processes them for filter 
smoking. The result: Filter- 
Blend up front of a modern fil- 
ter. That's what makes Winston 
Si complete filter cigarette. 

Filter-Blend also makes 
Winston America's best-selling, 
best-tasting filter cigarette /Fake 
it from Sir Isaac:

Winston tastes good like a cigarette should!"

Home Ec. Club To Hold 
A Meeting This Sunday 

The School of Homo Economics at Skinner Hail welcomed thirty 
six freshmen to the UMass campus this year. The girls eome from 
various parts of .Massachusetts — plus three from out of state. 

The Edna Skinner Home Ec Club executive board held a meet- 
ing last Wednesday, conducted by President Judy Brown '61, with 
Miss Merriam, faculty advisor, and board members present. Plans 
were made for the first meeting of the year, to he held September 27, 
at 6:30 p.m. The meeting will primarily be a get-acquainted one for 
present club members and the new freshmen. Elaine Gwodz '60, who 
represented the Edna Skinner Club at the National Home Economics 
Association Convention in Milwaukee this past June will give an ac- 
count of her experiences. Another feature will be the introduction of 
foreign students on campus who are studying Home Economics. And 
refreshments are served I 

In reference to the "Dictionary" in last week's Collegian — pseudo- 
major for Home Ec — "Husband Hunting" — For our defense, it is a 
well known fact that Home Ec majors KEEP them!

Mexican Grad Student Win 
$1200 Exterminating Plants 



a 



William Ziener of the Univer- 
sity of Massachusetts is $1200 
richer this semester for knowing 
how to rid a lake of pretty but 
pesky water hyacinths. 

Ziener, a native of Mexico, 
competed with rtOO other con- 
testants seeking a 15.000 peso 
($1200) prize offered by a Mexi- 
can newspaper for the "most ef- 
fective, economical and rapid" 
means of ridding Lake Chapala 
in the state of Jalisco of the 
plaguey hyacinths. The plants, 
which choke waterways and dis- 
rupt the lake's mutual relations 
between organisms and their 
environment, are considered an 
economic liability by Mexican 
authorities. 



Announcement of the top prize 
awarded to Ziener was made 
recently In El Informador, the 
newspaper which sponsored the 
project. News of the award was 
made public at the Universily by 
Mr. John H. Lilly, head of the 
department of entomology and 
plant pathology. 

Ziener, who holds an agricul- 
ture engineer's degree from Ihe 
Escuela Particular de Agricul- 
tura. Mexico, is an entomology 
major beginning his second year 
of advanced study at the Univer- 
sity of Massachusetts. Currently 
completing his thesis for a mas- 
ter of science degree, he will re- 
main at the University for his 
doctorate in entomology.

THE MASSACHUSETTS COLLEGIAN, WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 13, 1»S» 



FACTS N FIGURES 

by DICK BRESCIANI '60 

The UMass Redmen run into Harvard's highest rated eleven in 
year, on Saturday. The Crimson, loaded with sophs from a very suc- 
cessful frosh dub, are even being picked by some observers to win 
the Ivy League crown. 

But. th«- impetus given the Redmen by their thrilling final period 
come-back last weekend against Maine should enable them to really 
give Harvard quite a battle. 

The quality of football played in the Yankee Conference has 
steadily improved during the past few years. Certainly the YanCon 
could gain a tremendous amount of prestige this weekend if the Red- 
men upend the Crimson, and Connecticut defeats Yale. Our upper- 
crust Ivy Leaguers would ptobably never recover (emotionally) from 
a double setback on a single Saturday by their lowly neighbors. 
UMass Bonus Boys Have Big Seasons 

Two former UMass baseballers, who signed for bonuses, had 
outstanding seasons with their respective minor league teams this 

past summer. 

Ralph (Lefty) Lumenti, signed by the Washington Senators for 
$35 000 in SepW of 1967 off the UMaca campus, compiled a 13-8 rec- 
ord with the Charlotte, S.C Hornets of the Class A Sally League. He 
was called up by the Senators and is supposed to start at least one 

game. . 

Last week Lumenti was selected as the top major league pitching 

prospect in the league and was also named as the left-handed hurler 
on the loop's official All-Star team. The speed-baller tossed a no- 
hitter in June and finished with the third best earned run average. 

Steve Ryder, who signed with the Milwaukee Braves' organiza- 
tion after his frosh year in June 1958, rolled up a resounding .346 
average in 125 games with the Eau Claire, Wis. Braves of the Class 
C Northern League. 

The slugging outfielder finished third in the batting race. He 
clouted 12 home runs and drove in 90 runs. This performance could 
boost Ryder into at least Class A ball next year. 

Around The Major Leagues 

Little Luis Aparicio, Chicago White Sox speed-demon, has stolen 
54 bases, the highest tocal since George (Snuffy) Sternweiss pilfered 
61 for the Yankees back in 1945. 

Aparicio's total is higher than that of any team in the American 
League except the Boston Red Sox who have 66 thefts to their credit. 

Slugger Ernie Banks of the Chicago Cubs is known for his hit- 
ting ability, but the veteran shortstop may set two new Major League 
fielding records this year. Banks has committed just 11 errors and his 
fielding average is .985. 

A continuation of this pace in the final week of the campaign 
will give Ernie two new records. Since he also has the r.b.i. crown 
sewed up and is tied with Eddie Mathews in the homer derby at 43, it 
could be quite a banner year for Banks. 

"Game For Animals?" 

Ronnie Knox, once highly-rated quarterback who played for three 
different high schools and several N.F.L. clubs, quit the Toronto Ar- 
gonauts recently. 

A passion 10 become a poet and movelist caused Knox to run and 
turn his back on more than $11,000 he would have made at Toronto. 

"It's a game for animals and I like to think I'm above that," 
Knox stated. "The better things in life interest me more." 



Harvard Tickets Sell Fast 



Tickets for the Massachusetts 
vs. Harvard football game this 
Saturday at Cambridge, are cur- 
rently on sale at the Student 
Union lobby counter from 8:30 
a.m. to 5:00 p.m. 

The price for the tickets are 
$3 for reserved seats and $1.50 
for general admission. 

It has been reported that the 



tickets are going fast. 

Last week's Redmen victory 
over Maine is believed to have 
been a factor in the student rush 
for tickets. 

With the student support 
aroused, a huge UMass cheering 
section is exec ted to occupy part 
of the immense Harvard coli- 
seum.

Saturday's Redmen victory over Maine has given new impetus 
to the UMass eleven. UMass, a 19-0 underdog, came from behind to 
skin the Black Bran* from Orono. 

This week the Redmen travel to Cambridge where they will try 
to turn the tables on Ivy League Harvard. 

It was back in 1954 that an underdog Massachusetts eleven upset 
highly ranked Harvard, 13-7. 

The Harvard upset has been regarded as Coach Charlie O'Rourke's 
greatest coaching achievement, and no doubt the "Thin Man" of the 
Heights will be looking forward to a repeat performance. 



'Mighty Trio 9 




The fate of the Redmen Frosh grid team is in the hands of 
three former collegiate gridsters. The trio includes head coach 
Dick MacTherson (center), a graduate of Springfield College 
and a former member of the University of Illinois coaching staff; 
line coach Lou Varrichione (left), v « of last year's starting 
Itedmen guards and a YanCon all-star ct«. ' « for the 117 and '58 
seasons: and hackfield coach Don Johnson (ri&. "*. captain of the

BOOTERS BEAT 
ALUMNI, 3-0 

by DAVE MRAZ '61 

The varsity squad handed the 
Alumni soccer team a solid 
trouncing by winning Saturday's 
opener 3-0. Although not a reg- 
ularly scheduled encounter, the 
game was the first opportunity 
this season for the varsity to 
meet organized opposition. 

Even though the Alumni had 
a good defense, they couldn't 
come through with the scoring 
punch. On the other hand, the 
Redmen had good depth in de- 
fense combined with accurate 
passing to make the offense line 
click. 

Jim Rosenberg led the front 
line by scoring two goals, while 
the halfback line was sparked by 
Grant Bowman, who scored the 
third goal to cap the morning. 
Coast Guard Next 

Defeating the Alumni got the 
team off to a good start for the 
season and h**s put them in the 
proper spirit to give the Coast 
Guard a smashing defeat. 

The Redmen will play the 
Coast Guard Academy this Satur- 
day; the game starting at 2:00 
p.m. on the field next to the ten- 
nis courts. Those who aren't go- 
ing to Harvard, should come on 
out and support the team — they'd 
appreciate your backing. 



E&S Winner 




Dick Riley, a 6'2", 230 lb. tackle 
from Lowell is the E&S Cam- 
pus Cleaners award winner for 
the week. 

Riley won the award because 
of his fine downfield blocking 
and effective defensive play in 
last week'a game against Maine. 



Meet The Coach— 
Chet Glade huck 

Chet Gladchuk joined the U 
Mass coaching fraternity with 
Charlie O'Rourke seven years 
ago. A native of Bridgeport, 
Conn., Chet won all sectional 
honors at Harding High School

title. 

Since joining O'Rourke in 1952, 
Chet has turned out some top- 
notch line men at the University 
of Massachusetts. In 1954 guard 
Don MacPhee won honorable 
mention on the Little All Ameri- 
can squad and Lou Kirseh was 
named to the Yankee Conference 
eleven. 

Besides heing a football coach 
at the University, Chet is also 
the varsity and frosh golf coach.

Senate, Officers 

Pass Two New 

Constitution Amendments 

by ALAN FINKLESTEIN 
Senate Reporter 



With the coming of Senate elec- 
tions in two weeks, a constitu- 
tional convention consisting of the 
Student Senate and all class of- 
ficers passed two amendments to 
the Student Government Con- 
stitution last Wednesday night in 
the S.U. 

One amendment passed un- 
animously, calls for reapportion- 
ing the number of senators in 
residential areas. This amendment 
changes the ratio of one senator 
for every 150 students to one 
senator for every 225 students. A 
residential area will be entitled to 
an additional senator for every 
additional 150 students. The 
maximum number of senators al- 
lowed for one residential area 
will be six for any number of 
students over 824. 

Earlier, the convention passed 
an amendment seeking to safe- 
guard the powers of the Senate 
president. Passed by a role call 
vote of 32 to 2, this amendment 
declares that if the Senate Presi- 
dent is absent temporarily, the 
acting president will preside as 
chairman, but will assume no 
presidential powers such as the 
power to make committee ap- 
pointments. 

Dennis Twohig '60, in speaking 
for the amendment said, "It has 



come from the General Court that 
we need this amendment. Any- 
one who votes against it takes 
the responsibility for getting an 
amendment on the floor if it is 
necessary." 

All students interested in run- 
ning for the Senate please take 
notice. All dormitory and married 
students will participate in elec- 
tions scheduled for Wednesday, 
October 7, between 8 and 11 P.M. 
in the dorms. The fraternity, 
sorority, and commuting students 
will hold elections from 10 to 5 
A.M. in the Union lobby. At this 
time an election for a Senator-at- 
Large for '62 will be held. 

Applications will be available 
in the office of the Dean of Men 
on Monday, September 28, and 
will be due back on October 5 at 
4:30 P.M. A drawing for posi- 
tion on the ballot is scheduled for 
5 P.M. on the same day. 

At the regular Senate meet- 
ing, which was held directly after 
the constitutional convention, 
Senate President Rob Zelis '60 
announced that there are still a 
few openings for students on the 
Fine Arts, LaDrary, aim i uum. 
Health Committees. All students 
interested should contact Zelis as 
soon as possible.

Keep Homecoming Dry 
IFC Warns Alumni 



by LARRY RAYNER *61, News Editor 



The Inter-Fraternity Council 
made it clear tha the campus 
fraternities will Strictly abide by 
the administration' "no drinking 
policy" at their weekly meeting 
last Wednesday night, 

Mark Nelson (P^K) introduced 
the discussion by pointing out 
that the fraternities would have 
a very serious proh'< m preventing 
alumni from drinking in the 
houses on Homecoming Weekend. 
Mike Dube (KS) took the view 
that all fraternity members 
should be on the lookout for this

office of Student Activities, which 
is operated by his assistant,

problem, but "it i. c impossible to 
be on the watch every minute." 
It was pointed out that a num- 
ber of houses are sending out 
letters to alumni who are plan- 
ning to visit on Homecoming 
Weekend telling them that there 
will be absolutely no drinking in 
the fraternities. Mike Dube posed 
the question, "If a guest drinks in 
the house, is the house respon- 
sible?" IFC President Tom Camp- 
bell (TO answered, "Yes, each 
house is responsible. We don't 
want any fraternities punished]

because of two or three alumni 
who can't wait for a drink until 
they get off campus. The adminis- 
tration said that there will be no 
drinking. It's in black and wbite 
in the University rules and IFC 
By-laws." 

In other business, Don Adams, 
(PMD) rushing chairman for the 
IFC, suggested that all fraterni- 
ties sit in one section of the 
stands at home football games. 

Mike Dube brought up the fact 
that the members of each house 
would want to sit together. 
Adams answered that this was 
possible under this motion. "The 
members of the individual houses 
could still sit together but all 
WOUld bet sitting in the same 
general area in the stands." 

Steve Sackmary (PSD) pointed 
out that this would require that 
the IFC reserve a section of the 
stand. "I don't think that the 
administration would give us per- 
mission and even if they did, we 
would be sitting in the same 
people by reserving such a large 
section." 

The majority of the members 

eed that each house would 

•efer to (it where they chose. 

Another motion, brought up by 

Ron Perry (TC), IFC Athletics 

Chairman, from the Council oi 

I • , , proposed that the 

Intra fraternity football schedule

, ■■ campus, 



by DICK BRESCIANI '08 

A large motorcade will travel 
to Harvard Stadium tomorn 
morning to cheer the 1 Ms 
football team in its big clash 
with Harvard. 

The motorcade will leave South 
parking lot (in front of the I age) 
at 9:30 with tWO cars carrying 
the cheerleaders in the lead. 

Campus police chief "Red" 

Hlasko will escort the caravan 
out of town. The group will 

travel to Harvard >ia Route 2. 

Special Parking Lot 

With parking space near the 
Stadium difficult tO find, arrange- 
ments have been made with Har- 
vard officials to reserve a large 
parking lot for members of the 
motorcade. 

Tickets to gain admi ision to 

the special 1'Mass motorcade 

parking lot will he given out at 
the Cage parking lot before tin- 
group leaves for the game. 

Since University rules do not. 
allow unscheduled holidays, no 
classes will be cancelled tomor- 
row morning. 

However, it is hoped that close 
to 100 cars will take part in the 
motorcade, the first at UMass 

sine,. 1956. 

'»n that occasion, spirit was 
high 



for UMass fans by rolling up a

When the Redmen take the 
field for the opening kickoff to- 
morrow they will be 11 point un- 
derdogs. But with a solid UMass 
cheering section spurring them 
the Redmen could upset the 
applecart.

Look in the Mirror 

WHat happened to the queen of the high 
school prom? What happened to Mr. Big of 
Small Town High? What happened to the 
student who breezed through high school and 
came to college only to find that he has to 
Btudy hard to earn grades that he considers 
inferior to his high school marks? This is the 
land wlu-re good men meet their superiors 
and the best men meet their peers. 

In a recent issue of Cosmopolitan maga- 
zine it was pointed out that this struggle 
to maintain their high school standing in 
college has led to the mental and emotional 
breakdown of many college students, espe- 
cially freshmen. More often, and in some 
ways more serious than the cases of com- 
plete mental breakdown, are those incidents 
where students become frustrated in their 
attempts, and as a result become depressed 
only to fall short of their potentialities 
into the pit of mediocrity. 

Cosmopolitan went on to explain that the 
real failure in this problem is the failure on 
the part of college freshmen to mature. Too 
many freshmen tail to realize that recogni- 
tion will not come as a result of high school 
achievement (nor will it be hampered as a 
result of lack of high school achievement). 
The important mt n on campus are important 
because they made themselves so — alone.

Voice From The Past 

by TED MA EL '60 

Amid all the hullaballoo surrounding Khrushchev's vis- 
it, I doubt many of you read about a speech made last 
Wednesday in Woodford. England. An 8 1-year-old gentle- 
man campaigning for Parliament declared: "We must avoid 
all temptation to buy a temporary peace at the price of sur- 
render of vital interests." This declaration sounded like a 
voice from the past. Twenty -one years ago, this same voice 
was making similar statements to warn his fellow country- 
men against appeasing that ravenous lunatic, Hitler. But 
the British did not heed the appeals of Sir Winston Church- 
ill and, consequently, had to call on him to save them from 
defeat and devastation. 

However, Sir Winston's experiences with dictators did 
not end with Hitler. During the war, he was allied with 
another— Joseph Stalin. As wartime allies with Stalin or 
"Uncle Joe", as he was affectionately called, Americans and 
Britons were willing to let bygones be bygones. They for- 
got that in the '30's, Uncle Joe was responsible for the 
death of about 10 million Russians. They forgot that Uncle 
Joe had signed a non-aggression pact with Hitler in 1939 
to pave the way for World War II. Moreover, Uncle Joe 
was murmuring phrases about Christ and God, peace and 
friendship. Undoubtedly, he had seen the errors of his ways 
and had reformed. 

But Sir Winston did not trust Stalin. The Prime Minis- 
ter warned Roosevelt against giving the Russian boss too 
many concessions. FDR, however, thought his English 
friend was too pessimistic. For this was the new Stalin. 
By 1948 it was clear that the only difference between the 
old and the new Stalin was that the "new" Stalin controlled 
East Germany, Poland, Hungary, Czechoslovakia, Albania, 
Bulgaria, Rumania, Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania as well 
as the Soviet Union. 

Today Uncle Joe's successor, "Cousin Niki", is touring 
the United States. Our jolly Cousin Niki, who poses as a 
combination Santa Claus and Messiah, also murmurs 
phrases about Christ and God, peace and friendship. And 
again many Americans are indicating by their cheers and 
warm greetings that they are willing to let bygones be by- 
gones. It is so easy to forget that Cousin Niki had less than 
six months ago given us an ultimatum to get out of Berlin 
or else and that Cousin Niki only 2 weeks ago gave sanc- 
tion to a Communist Uprising in Laos. 

Sir Winston Churchill must be overly pessimistic just 
as he was with Hitler ami Stalin. This is the new Khrush- 
chev. All he wants is Berlin and the Middle East. (For now, 
anyway.)

Red China: 

Deadlock In The U.N. 

by VIRGIL B. DIXON 

Kditor'-! Note: The opinions expressed in this article arc thosi 
the author anil do not necessarily reflect the policy of the C«Uegian. 

Earlier this week, the United Nations General Assem- 
bly once again refused admis ion of Red China into its body. 
This year the vote. It to 29 with nine abstentions, was a 
reiteration Of the last year's vote, casting a poor light on the 
U.N. Assembly. It is my opinion that all the nations of the 
Assembly, except the United States and Russia, are giving 

little consideration to this case in point. In view of this 
theory, We ran also summarize that these nations are too 
busy with their problems. Or, perhaps they believe that the 

U.N. is running smoothly without Red China? So, why be 



LETTERS 

TO THE EDITOR 



The Rumble And The Crash 

To the Editor: 

The following unsigned, printed note was slipped 
under my door Wednesday when I was at the Senate 
meeting: 
"Rock and Roll" will have its revenge against 
radicals who deprive normal people of their free- 
dom of choice. Try reading the U.S. Constitution 
sometime. 
In reply I submit: 
To the anomalous gentlemen: 

The Student Union Governing Board, which has 
a student majority, sets all policy with regard to the 
use of Student Union facilities; this includes setting 
policy pertaining to juke box usage. The Board 
generally tries to reflect campus opinion in setting 
policy while doing, what it considers, the best serv- 
ice to the campus community. Most "normal peo- 
ple", that is, students at the University with some 
intellectual capacity reflected in their eclectic musi- 
cal aptitude, will place both "Rock and Roll" and 
"Classical" music in their proper perspective and 
appreciate each at a suitable time. The Student 
Union Governing Board felt it was reflecting the 
will of the "normal people" (c.f. anomalous) in sub- 
stituting something musically more suitable than 
the juke box selections during the early morning 
hours. If you agree with us, if you disagree with 
us, there is a suggestion box outside of the "Hatch" 
almost exactly behind the juke box. The S.U.G. 
Board will consider the will of the student body 
when establishing a permanent policy in this mat- 
ter. 

Might I also add that I am always influenced by 
the wishes of the majority, but never by an anony- 
mous individual.

No Escape? 

Joseph Wood Krutch in Grand Canyon: 

How long will it be before there is no quietness 
anywhere, no escape from the rumble and the crash, 
the clank and the screech which seem to be the in- 
evitable Accompaniment of technology? Whatever 
man does or produces, noise seems to be an un- 
avoidable by-product. Perhaps he can, as he now 
tends to believe, do anything. But he cannot do it 
quietly. 

William Sloane Associates 
Reprinted from The Render' a Itiyeat 

bothered bringing her into the U.N. and 
starting an endless cycle of trouble? 

This year the United States introduced a 
two part resolution which prevented Red 
China's entrance. The first part was actual- 
ly a defeat of an Indian request to put the 
Red China question on the General Assembly 
agenda. In part two of the resolution the As- 
sembly agreed not to replace the Nationalist 
Government of China with the Communist 
regime. 

This whole issue of Red China's admit- 
tance to the United Nations raises an old 
and well argued question of "Should the 
United States Recognize Red China?" This 
is the backbone of the whole matter in that 
if the U.S. does acknowledge her, this Com- 
munist state will, more than likely, become 
the 83rd member of the United Nations. The 
U.S.A. has refused for over ten years to 

recognize the Chinese gov- 
ernment. What the United 
States is attempting to 
prove, I do not know. But we 
should at least realize this: 
even without the United 
states' recognition, she has 
existed and maintained her- 
self as the stronger of the 
two Chinese governments. I 
do not advocate United 
States recognition of Red 
China or continued non-rec- 
ognition. All I ask is n rec- 
onsideration of the situation 
in the true light of its worth. 

Next year, as in years 
past, Red China will prob- 
ably be refused entrance to

of one of the armies, and Powor, a leader in the Roman Senate 

Matherius: I say Powor, my captains are restless and full of dis-

Powor: Wine? Though I, thy eampius diy!

^T^N~CO~AFTKR HARVARD SCALPS 



by VIN 
Sports 

The Massachusetts Redmen, 
fresh from their thrilling upset 
victory over Maine last week-end, 
will invade Cambridge this Satur- 
day where they meet the Harvard 
eleven at the Harvard coliseum. 
Charlie Ravenel and halfback 
that he will use almost the same 
starting lineup as he did last 
week. However, the fact that 
O'Rourke has not committed him- 
self to name a definite starting 
team has led to speculation that 
there may be one or two changes 
in the backfield. or perhaps even 
in the line. 

Saturday's conflict against the 
Crimson will once again see the 
Redmen taking the underdog's 
position. This year's Harvard 
squad is predicted to be one of 
the best in recent years. 

Harvard's mentor John Yovfc- 
sin has a squad of forty-four 
candidates led by sixteen return- 
ing lettermen. 

The Crimson offense will offer 
a one-two punch of quarterback 
Charlie Ravenel and halfback 
Chet Bourlis. Ravenel is picked 
as one of the finest play callers 
in the Ivy League, while Boulris 
is an All-Ivy star. 

The Crimson, whose season will 
officially open with the grid-bat- 
tle against UMass, scrimmaged 



BASILE 
Editor 

Williams last Friday and out- 
scored the Ephs, 38-12. 

Harvard coaches witnessed last 
week's Redmen victory over the 
Black Bears and Yovicsin had 
much praise for quarterback John 
McCormick, referring to him as 
a nifty passer. 

The Redmen, after their dem- 
onstration last week, proved that 
they can be a winning ball club. 
However, they will have to over- 
come the penalties and fumbles 
which plagued them in the first 
half. 

The game promises to be a 
thriller from start to finish with 
Harvard trying hard to open the 
season with a victory. The boys 
from Amherst, meanwhile, will 
be trying to repeat the 1954 
UMass upset over Harvard. 




Shown above are quarte/back John McCormick, Coach Charlie O'Rourke, and end Ralph 
Maloney. Both players are probable starters in Saturday's game with Harvard and should be decisive 
factors for the Redmen.

Redmen Must 
Stop Ravenel 



by CLAUDE WELCH 



Editor's Note — Mr. Claude 
Welch is a member of the Junior 
Board of the Harvard Crimson. 
The opinions expressed here are 
his own and definitely not those 
of the Collegian.) 



Harvard football fans have 
waited five long years for a win- 
ning team. At last they have 
one; this fall's Crimson eleven 
has both the depth and talent 
which coach Charlie O'Rourke 
lacks on his Redman squad. His- 



Coach John Yovicsin's squad 
runs from a split-T formation, 
relying extensively on dive and 
slash plays. Ravenel _ passing is 
at present the Crimson's weak 
offensive point, and O'Rourke 
will doubtedlessly jam the line 
to halt the ground attack. 

Graduation claimed nearly all 
the star Harvard line of last sea- 
son, which averaged nearly 215 
pounds per man between the 
tackles. Over half the members 



tory may repeat itself, but those of the squad are sophomores 



who expect a repeat of the 1954 
upset will meet with disappoint- 
ment. 

Quarterback Charlie Ravenel 
is one of the finest in the Ivy 
League. He runs fast and hard, 
uses an effective belly-series op- 
tion play, and has an uncanny 



without varsity experience, and 
the success of the Harvard squad 
depends almost entirely upon the 
showing of these new players. 

In a scrimmage last Friday 
against Williams, the Crimson 
trounced the Eph eleven, 38-12, 
with Ravenel scoring three toueh- 



know'edge of weak points in the downs on runs of 20, 25, 30 yards 



opponent's line. His backfield re- 
turns intact, and includes big 
halfhack Chet Boulris, an All- 
Ivy performer and leading ground 
gainer on the team. 



If the UMass* defense cannot stop 
him, the game is as good as lost, 
by two or three touchdowns. But 
if Ravenel can be halted, an upset 
could be in the making. 



Coach John Yovicsin has a 
fine veteran backfield headed by 
quarterback Charlie Ravenel and 
halfback Chet Boulris. Up front 
however, things aren't so rosy. 
Captain Hank K» »hane is the 
only returning starter from last 
year's forward wall. The line 
play of the Redrmn, led by stal- 
wart tackle Dick Riley, was a 
major factor in the comeback vic- 
tory against Maine. It could be a 
major factor again this week.

The National Football Leagv e

row night when the Los Angeles

The eleven other clubs in the

lowly Chicago Cardinals proved 
in a Louisville exhibition garde

Never in all football history has 
there been a player who created 
a more fantastic saga of "From

"Red" Grange. In his first sea-

some $30,000. And that, mind 
you, was in 1925 Not bad for a 
guy who spent Iim undergraduate 
summers hauling ice. 

Back in 1890, Wisconsin's 
Badgers charged onto the grid- 
iron to face the Gophers of Min- 
nesota wearing top hats. It was 
the only formal football game 
ever fought. Who won? Why, the 
opposition, of course, 63-0.

Spotlighting 
The Redmen 



by PETE TEMPLE 



i The headline of the Boston 
American's football extra read 
"Harvard Oig Favorite", and BO 
they were; a three touchdown 
favorite, in fact. 

Despite the Redmen 32-27 win 
over AIC the previous week, 
Charlie O'Rourke and his squad 
were considered no match for 
this powerful Crimson team. 

But on that steaming October 
afternoon in 1 954 the spirited 
Redmen were not to be denied, 
though it appeared for a while 
that their role as 18 point under- 
dog was justified. 

While the men from UMass 
played littie better than school- 
girls, John Harvard jumped off 
to an early first period lead. 
Moving 28 yards in four plays 
after a pass Interception, the 
Crimson pushed across a tally, 
and the experts felt secure in 



♦ u ■> 



i r p ! 



v.. il iff inn 



The second quarter saw the 
O'Rourke-men come to life. With 
sub-quarterback Jack Noble at 
the helm, the Redmen marched 
deep into Harvard territory. A 
screen pass from the youthful 
signal caller to Red Johnson push- 
ed the ball to the Harvard two 
yard line, and on the next play 
Soph halfback Roger Barous 
smashed over for the score. But 
the try for point after failed and 
the Redmen trailed by a lone 
point, 7-6. 

Neither team was able to move 
the ball at the start of the second 
half until Harvard, late in the 
third canto, put on a sustained 
drive, only to have it sputter on 



the UMass 13 yard line. 

With play now in the final 
stanza and the Ret! men still trail- 
ing, Noble again took over the 
quarterback duties. After moving 
the team to a first down on their 
own 24, the slim signal caller, 
ironically a native of Cambridge 
and a past frequent visitor to the 
Stadium, swung around right end 
on an option play, kept the ball, 
and raced 02 yards before being 
hauled down on the Crimson 11 
yard line. Again Noble worked 
the keeper, this time to the left, 
and advanced within a yard of 
pay dirt 

Barous was called on for the 
finishing touch to the Redmen 
march. The Soph back s^ain 
crossed Harvard's goal and Phil 
Surgeon calmly split the uprights 
for the extra point The Redmen 
now held a 13-7 lead with minutes 
remaining. 

But the Crimson team was not 
yet dead. Driving steadily, in a 
now heavy rain, they advanced 
to the Redmen 8 yard line. First 
and goal to go. A touchdown was 
a tie, possibly a win. 

No one, however, was to take 
this victory from the Redmen. 
Four Harvard plays netted them 
four losses as the men from 
UMass, spear-headed by Surgeon 
and Cappy Kidd, put on a magni- 
ficent goal -line stand. 

Seconds later the game was 
over. Nearly 4,000 loyal Massach- 
usetts fans went crazy. Twenty- 
three spirited m*»n from UMass 
had done the impossible — they 
had toppled mighty John Har- 
vard.

THOUGHTS 
ON EDUCATION 

Undoubtedly, many of you asked your- 
selves, "Why am I herer or "What is the 
value and purpose of a college education?" 
In your discussions with your parents, you 
may have come to the conclusion that you 
Are here so that you may be trained for a 
future vocation. 

But a university is more than a glorified 
trade school and the goal of a college educa- 
tion cannot be measured by any wage scale 
or Bel of statistics. The main purpose of any 
college is to help you enjoy life more fully. 
Just as you can enjoy baseball only when 
you have a knowledge of the game, so you 
can appreciate the world we live in only 
when you have some understanding of nat- 
ure and human Society. Thus, when an en- 
gineering major takes a history course or an 
English major elects botany, he is widening 
his field of knowledge so that he can com- 
prehend and, consequently, better enjoy life. 
You'll find jrOttr college courses much dif 
ferent than your high school curriculum. In- 
stead of just memorizing facts, your subjects 
will require you to form and express your 
own opinions hated on relevant facts. By 
developing your thinking process, these 
courses should help you to solve problems 
you will encounter once you have graduated. 
Finally, you will come to appreciate the 
complex. Jes of this world and should be 
more open minded about life in general. For 
example, how many of us know the philos- 
ophy of Communism? Most of us are opposed 
to Communism: hut why are we opposed? By 
studying this theory, we can better under- 
stand it. If are still opposed to it, then we 
can give a rational, not an emotional, ex- 
planation of our opposition. 

Seldom are worthwhile attributes gained 

isily. but hard work makes the reward all 
the greater. 



THE VALUE 
OF CRITICAL DISCUSSION 

Education during the past several years, particularly 
with the advent of spectacular scientific advancements, has 
been subject to the pushings and pullings of theories which 
proclaim to place American education on a competitive level 
with Russian education. This surge forward has in many 
respects failed. Many attempts to offer more and more 
courses to a broader range of students have not been suc- 
cessful education-wise, because the validity of the subject 
in relation to America's needs has not been given much 
consideration. 

Notably, high school students are happily taking 
courses of all types, with no thought of concentration in any 
particular field. It seems that many of those interested in 
the problem of' education are "keeping up with the Rus- 
sians" lather than giving attention to the cultivation of 
critical attitudes necessary for good judgment and thinking. 

So many of the subjects offered today are taken by 
students merely for the credit. The final outcome is that he 
jv she does not derive even a general understanding of that 
particular field. In short, the school departments often have 
been showing little discretion in the choice of courses. As 
Dr. Lou LaBrant pointed out, there are many courses being 
taught which are not as "imperative as knowledge of 
Moslem customs or religion, or what languages are needed 
and for what ends." 

'The science out of which questionings come is taught 
in school; but discussion of its philosophical implications 
is taboo, 'controversial,' and restricted to generalities ac- 
ceptable to the most primitive sects." Dr. Lou LaBrant, past 
president of the National Council of Teachers of English, 
in a Saturday Review editorial, "The Dynamics of Educa- 
tion", stressed the ever-growing need for critical thinking 
by the individual — the man-on-the-street. No longer can 
hazy sentimentalities govern man's decisions. And yet, criti- 
cal thinking is avoided and discouraged by the masses. Most 
educators, we believe, realize that one cannot shy away 
from these critical issues and discussions. 

Yesterday's editorial in the \nr York Times spoke of 
eminent scholars meeting for the fifth general assembly of 
the International Council for Philosophy and Humanistic 
Studies. It is their conclusion and ours that the humanities 
will "give a fresh insight into both Western and Eastern 
thought . . ." They continued that, "to the layman . . . dis- 
cussion such as this is Important because it indicates that 
our scholars are helping us to think our way into a chang- 
ing world."

LITTLE MAN ON CAMPUS 




School Spirit 
Is Not Dead 

by LLOYD TERAN '62 

While attending the Mass-Harvard football game 
Saturday, a couple of incidents caught my atten- 
tion, which have prompted me to believe that school 
spirit is still very much alive at UMass. 

During half-time, with UMass. losing in a shut- 
out, fans were "entertained" by the Harvard band. 
In the Crimson "sportsman-like" way, their band 
ridiculed some of the recent actions and events at 
UMass by spelling out the words-"No Dough," "No 
Prez," "No Booze," "No Band," and "No Score." For 
accompaniment, they played "I've Got Plenty of 
Nothing." 

At the exhibition's completion, several UMass. 
students, led by another student wearing an Indian 
head dress, marched out onto the field and pro- 
ceeded to play "Fight Massachusetts." Whether this 
maneuver was done in "school spirit", or in 'Mack o^ 
spirit" is difficult to say, but it certainly seemed to 
arouse the UMass. fans' spirits. 

Not meaning to offend the regular "Redman" 
band but, never did "Fight Massachusetts" sound so 
vital and mean so much as then, while we were 
being ridiculed about our present controversies. 

Everything about the Harvard-UMass. game 
showed spirit . . . from the large turnout of Mass. 
rooters to the way that the fans, at times, out- 
cheered the cheerleaders. 

Student support is greatly needed by the adminis- 
tration in this time of controversy and criticism, and 
for the first time since I've been here, I have seen 
traces that such support exists. Neither Harvard, 
nor any other school, should be able, when speaking 
of UMass, to spell out "No Spirit". 



Need For Exchange Visits 

by JON DAITCH '63 

Many people in both the United States and 
abroad have said that the present visit to America 
by Premier Khrushchev is not only useless but 
downright dangerous to the U.S. and her allies. How 
Mr. K's tour could be harmful, I cannot understand. 
We are certainly not going to turn into Com- 
munists if we look at the Russian boss and I rather 
doubt that he has any intention of becoming a Billy 
Graham of Marxism-Leninism. By the same token, 
he is not going to go out and buy 1,000 shares of 
preferred G.M. stock. It is the same thing as saying 
that when President Eisenhower goes over to visit 
the U.S.S.R., he will become an ardent "party man", 
or that he will return with 200 million Madison Ave. 
worshippers in grey flannel suits. 

First Hand View Important 
By coming here, Mr. K. will be able to get a first 
hand view of his foes, understand the attitude of 
the people, and see the differences and similarities 
between his country and America. These comparisons 
could never be made at Geneva. At summit confer- 
ences, individuals, not groups, are involved. The 
individual can put on a front; but try as they might, 
groups cannot hide the everyday occurrences that are 
a part of their culture. These little traits will be 
noticed by both men, and will give an excellent in- 
sight by which they can form their judgments. 

Mutual Trust a Possibility 

The exchange visits between President Eisen- 
hower and Premier Khrushchev may lead to the 
foundation of mutual trust between the Communist 
bloc and the Western nations. We must realize that 
unless public opinion is behind these visits, the 
President and other free world leaders are working 
in vain. Only through acceptance by the general 
populace can a truly free world ever"become a reali- 
ty. 



THE STUDENTS THANK . . . 

The COLLEGIAN has received many letters 
from students expressing their thanks for the free 
bus service to the shopping center of Amherst. Be- 
cnuse these letters express essentially the same sen- 
timent, the COLLEGIAN has decided to give its 
thanks in behalf of all the students who benefit from 
this service. We are indebted to the merchants' of 
Amherst and the Amherst Junior Chamber of Com- 
merce. This bus service is just one of many ways 
in which the Town and the University co-operate 
•with each other.

roqratn cr review 



0>, 



Starting Sunday October 4 
WMUA 91.1 F.M. in conjunction 
with WAMF U8.fi F.M., the Am- 
herst College station will begin 
stereo broadcasting. With two 
radio sets placed to form an 
equilateral triangle with the lis- 
tener as the third corner you 
can achieve stereophonic sound. 

This Sunday and every Sun- 
day following can be an adven- 
ture in sound. At 7 p.m. there 
will be a four college newscast, 
followed by the programming of 
semi-popular music, leading up 
to classical music. Normal broad- 
casting will he resumed by both 
stations at 9 p.m. 

Got a heavy study schedule- 
then listen to the UMass-Dele- 



.ware game at the dorm. Air time 
Saturday is 1:20 p.m. 

If you are in the Hatch Fri- 
day nights any time from B p.m. 
on. go over to see Barry Brooks 
in the Metawampee corner and 
ask him to play your favorite 
record. He'll be broadcasting the 
all request show, Crazy Rhvthms 
directly from the S.t'. at that 
time. 

There is always the controvei- 
sy over what the listener wants 
to hear when. Do you like rack 
and roll confined strictly to 
weekends, and classical music 
daring study hours? We here at 
WMUA would like to have your 
comments.

With ovei ~ ,)<> recognised stu 
dent organization! on campus, it 

is almost inevitable that prac 
tically everyone with whom JTOO 
come into eon tact is a member 
nay, an active member — Of si 
hast one of them. This innocent- 
[ooking statistic, however, can 
quite conceivably lead to unfoic 
seen difficulties. 

For instance, your roommate 
may unsuspectingly enter the 
room. You pounce: "I MIST bor- 
row your typewriter tomorrow to 
do my theme!" 

He counters, "Well, okay, 
but--" and proceeds to tell you 
that you MIST be present at to- 
night's meeting of the Outing 
('lub (7 p.m. tonight in the Nan- 
tucket Room of Ike S.U.). It 
seems that he's a wheel in this 
organization '^^ wants everyone 
to attend, especially freshmen, 
even if he must abduct them per- 
sonally. So what can you do? 
You're stuck . . . 

You can't escape it. wherever 
"ou go, there > s lomeone who 
wants you to join his organiza- 
tion. Even if yon have already 
been shanghaied, yon are not 
free: now the noble organizations 

want all members to ''end meet- 
ings regularly. Go by the bulletin 
board opposite the Hatch; there 
you'll see such notices as the fol- 
lowing: 

The fir**t meeting of the Hod 
and Gun Flub will be held on 
Tuesday* September 29 at 7:30 
p.m. in the Wildlife classroom of 
the Conservation Building. The 
wildlife students who worked in 
Alaska thi« summer will describe 
their experiences in our 49th 
state. Color movies will also be 
shown. All students are invited. 

OR 

The E. E. Club sponsored by 
the joint IRE-AIEE will hold its 
first meeting tomorrow, at 7 p.m. 
in the Council Chambers of the 
Student Union. All electrical en- 
gineers are invited. Dr. Scheck 
els, the now department head, will 
be introduced. Door prizes, a 
movie, coffee, cider, and dough- 
nuts are all included in this one 

hour program. 

OR 

The Government Department 
C o I I oq u i it m will take place 
Wednesday. September N at 4 
p.m. in the Commonwealth Room 
of the Union. Professor John 
I enton of the government depart- 
ment will speak on the subject 
"Is There a Catholic Note?" The 
public is invited to attend. 

.lust in case you don't frequent 

the Hatch (and there's not much 
to be said for you if you dont), 
a duplicate of this bulletin board 
is loocated to the right of the in 
formation desk as you enter the 
Union. And if you are one of 
those a&t] social people who never 
even enter the Student Union, the 
clubs still have you in their 
clutches. Everyone has to live 
somewhere. So in each dormitory 
usually strategically close to 
the mail slots — there is yet an- 
other large bulletin board bear- 
ing such items of interest as: 

The Operetta Guild is holding 
a meeting for all students inter- 
ested in dancing in this year's 
Guild productions. Norm Boucher 
will again act ss choreographer 
and will meet with all prospective 
dancers Tuesdsy evening, Sep- 
temher 29 at 6 p.m. in MemorisI 
Hall. There will be a discussion 
of this yesr's Guild plans for 
dancers and arrangement will 
be msde for dance rehearsals.

OK 

:iv tl I bad more 

people in yOUl room than drawers 
in the bureau? H<» JTOU wonder 
which of your roommates went 
OUl with your date Saturday 
night? And what they did? 

Come to the C A. general 
meeting on inter-personal rela- 
tions on Wednesday. Sept em her 
N at 7:30 p.m. in line No. I of 
the Commons. Or. Kobert S. 
Feldman of the psychology de- 
partment will discuss the topic 
from a scientist's point of view; 
Mr. Leland L. Varley of the Eng- 
lish department fmm that of a 
humanist: and the Rev. David S. 
King from that of a Christian 
theologist. Freshmen women can 
obtain special permission to at- 
tend this event. 

Another device to corral stu- 
dents into club meetings la the 
"spaghetti board" by the north 
Stairs of the Union. It carries 
such terse notices as: 

Thursday. Oct. 1; 11 a.m.; 
Debating Society business meet- 
ing. 

OR 
Wednesday, Sept. 30; 4 p.m.; 
Plymouth Room; Movie Commit- 
tee meeting. (All those interested 
are urged, begged, and coaxed to 
attend.) 

Naturally, word-of-mouth is an 
effective way of spreading pro- 
paganda, and rumor has it that 
certain students are employed 
just to walk around and tell peo- 
ple. "All juniors who are inter- 
ested in Winter Carnival com- 
mittees can still sign up at the 
S.U. lobby counter." 

Opposite the south stairs of the 



Union, thcr 



> vtill 



an 



ier hoard 



which carries announcements 
Known as the Campus Calendar, 
it, -neatly displays the times and 
location* of such meetings as the 
following: 

The Education Club will hold 
an informal "get-acquainted" tea 
on Wednesday, Sept. 30 from 4 
to 5 p.m. in the Colonial Lounge. 
Freshmen are invited to attend, 
as well as upperclassmen, who 
may pay their dues at this time. 

OR 

I be I're-Med Hub will meet to- 
morrow at 7:80 p.m. in the Rerk- 
shire Room. Plans f'"" the year 
will be made. Freshmen will be 
welcome; membership is open to 
all Pre Med, Pre-Dent and Rre- 

Vet students. 

Once these clubs get fully or- 
ganized they begin to hold more 
meetings and elect officers. For 
example, last Thurs. (Sept. 24) 
the Commuters Club elected the 
following officers: 

Rres. — Judy Goodell 
V.|\_Char!otte Marcotte 
Sec. — Cyrilla Garvey 
Tres. — Henry Rastallis 
Social Chairmen — Gail Mowry 

Stewart Ashley 
Publicity Chairman — Mary K. 

Heath 

After all these efforts, the 
least you can do is participate. 
Remember: somewhere there's a 
club that needs YOU!

How To Prolong 
Your Car's Life 



Car owners across the nation are ignoring simple arithmetic. 

Proof? Though a car represents the average American's most 
costly possession — excluding home and property — many motorists 
squander dollars needlessly by dooming their autos to an early junk- 
pile. 

The reason is usua'ly plain, simple neglect — especially with re- 
gard to lubrication. And the irony is that premature wear caused by 
improper lubrication can be avoided at practically no cost! All it 
takes is a basic understanding of the car's needs and a little thought 
and effort in attending to them. 

Why is good lubrication vital ? It reduces metal to metal contact 
which eventually leads to worn parts and breakdowns. A little lube 
care is much cheaper than the replacement of costly parts. 

The principal areas of concern regarding lubrication are: the 
chassis (and front end suspension); crankcase; and transmission. 
There are also other areas which require attention — but not as often. 
These include the springs, clutch, differential, wheel bearings, distri- 
butor, and the like. 

Each car manufacturer has its own specifications en how often to 
grease the chassis and front end. If you don't have a manual for your 
particular car, a safe general rule is to lubricate every 1,000 miles. 
This not only cuts wear, but serves as a much-needed periodic check- 
up. Like yourself, your car can be spared serious ailment by an occa- 
sional examination. 

GREASE NO LONGER JUST GREASE 

The choice of lubricant is a chore which practically everyone 
leaves up to the service station. Up until now there's been little reason 
to do otherwise. Today, however, there are special greases containing 
a unique additive with a tongue twisting name — known as molybden- 
um disulfide. A recently completed 2-million mile road test conduct- 
ed by a leading research institute in the Southwest shows that "Moly" 
lubricants reduce wear on steering assemblies by 38% and on sus- 
pension points 26%. 

These special greases mean easier steering, a safer and more com- 
fortable drive, and reduced repair bills. Shimmy — a common ailment 
but not to be ignored — is often caused by worn parts. "Moly" greases 
cut wear significantly on the parts involved in this problem. 

Practically all oil companies now produce a "Moly" grease— but 
in most stations you won't get this superior type of lube without re- 
questing it. 

CODDLE THE CRANKCASE 

The crankcase is the means by which motor parts are lubricated, 
hence merits a bit of coddling. Though not as badly neglected as the 
chassis, it is usually attended haphazardly. 

Oil picks up particles of grit that can act as an abrasive on the 
engine. In most new cars and trucks the crankcase should be com- 
pletely drained and refilled after the first 250-500 miles (consult your 
manual to be sure). After this initial change, intervals should be based 
on the type of service your vehicle gets. The recommendations of the 
American Petroleum Institute are: 1000 miles ... . Normal or average 
conditions such as city and suburban driving (typical operation of the 
family car); 500 miles . . . Unfavorable operating conditions such as 
cold weather and dusty roads (slai t-and-stop operation in zero or sub- 
zero weather is particularly severe) ; 2000 miles . . . Favorable operat- 
ing condition such as open highway driving where engine does little 
idling. 

When you pull into a station for oil and the attendant says "how 
heavy?", don't just make a wild stab. There's a degree of lee-way, but 
you should stay within bounds. Motorists who believe they save mon- 
ey by using extra heavy oil at all times should take caution. The oil 
can take too long to get to the engine, sometimes as many as 8 or 
10 engine revolutions. The general rule to follow is: 20 or 30 viscos- 
ities in summer (32°F to OO'F); 10 to 20 viscosities in winter

NURSING 
NOTES 



by BETTY KARL '60 

For those on our campus who 
do not realize we have a School 
of Nursing in our midst, we 
would like to add the following 
bit of information to their store 
of knowledge. 

A relative newcomer to our 
campus, (originating in Septem- 
ber, 1953), the School of Nurs- 
ing began as a 5-year program 
with four students. Since then, 
its size has increased by leaps 
and bounds, so that this year 
96 UMass students are aspiring 
to become nurses. 

Last spring, the School offici- 
ally became a four-year pro- 
gram, with its present 4th-year 
students as the last of the "five- 
yea'' men." 

Spending approximately 2 
years on campus and 2 years in 
the clinical field, the students 
traverse Mass. to study at such 
places as the McLean Psychia- 
tric Hospital in Waverly, and 
the Wesson Maternity Hospital 
in Springfield, spending most of 
their time at the Springfield 
Hospital. 

The School has become well- 
known among state nursing stu- 
dent associations, having had 
officers in the Mass. State Coun- 
cil of Student Nurses for 3 
years, and in the District 1 
Nursing Student organization 
for 2 years. 

(10°F to 32°F); 5 or 10 vis- 
cosities in extreme winter 
(-10°F to 10°F). 

Also important! Make sure 
the oil filter element is replaced 
every 5,000 miles. It is the fil- 
ter that is charged with the job 
of keeping the oi! clean. 

The third major lube area 
It the transmission. Ask to have 
the fluid level checked every 
1000 miles (when you get a 
chassis lube job). During con- 
stant use, metallic fibers chip 
off the gears. They will harm 
parts unless drained. Thus, a 
complete fluid change is re- 
quired for all automatic trans- 
missions — ranging from every 
15,000-25,000 miles. Consult your 
service station. 

ALERTNESS PAYS OFF 

There are other areas where 
alertness to lube needs pays off

Question: WluU is your reaction to the drinking l»an that has been 
fOVrted on campus? 



Nancy Uowe '99 Ashfield: "I think it's a good 
idea if they now ran effectually enforce it, be- 
cause there were too many wild things going on. 
It will bring on more studying." 




Don Saluta '00, Amherst: "I don't think thie ban 
fosters responsibility. It is kind of childish, as 
students must learn to drink sometime."

Barbara Center »6S, Pawtucket, R.T.: "It's a good

Although a good effort is now being made, I be- 
lieve that those who drink already will continue 
to do so. 



(Dear Jrtunt [Ruthi 



ie.. 



We are a couple of guys that belong to a fraternity. Our problem 
is that the fraternity parties don't seem to be what they use to be 
before the administration passed its recent ruling. The people don't 
seem to be having a good time. What could be done to help this situa- 
tion? 

Sincerely, 

"Concerned" 



Dear "Concerned", 

I am very glad that you have the interest of your fraternity at 
heart, for this is certainly a period of trial for the Greeks. As a cripple 
eventually has to learn to walk without a crutch, so it is with the fra- 
ternities, which have used alcohol as a sort of a social crutch. I am not 
saying that there is anything wrong with a sociable drink, but some 
fraternity members have become much too dependent on alcohol as a 
means of social enlightenment. An interest in their dates and social 
graces have been forgotten by many, or perhaps never learned. It is 
about time some of these people came out of their intoxicated delirium 
at parties, and took a sincere interest in their friends. It is only in 
this way that a truly good time can be had. 

Changing of deeply rooted customs, of course, takes time and may 
seem awkward for some at first, but in time, every MATURE person 
will realize that drinking should not be thought of as an activity. A 
wholesome get-together of friends with plenty of soft-drinks and food 
can never be equalled by a drunken brawl. 

Sincerely, 

Aunt Ruthie 



Dear Aunt Ruthie, 

I have a terrible problem. I don't seem to get along with girls. 
Kvery dance I go to I make a fool of myself. I'm not bad looking and 
my personality is pretty geod. Please tell me how I can become more 

popular with people. 

Alias, 

Bill Avery 

Dear "Bill", 

I am sure that almost every guy has felt that way at one time or 
another. You are probably a freshman and consequently you come in 
contact with mostly freshman girls. Well, freshman girls at a dance 
usually don't want to get tied down to one guy for the whole evening. 
Consequently they may seem cool and unfriendly. 

If you are interested in getting along with people, better try these 
tried and true rules: 

1. Always be yourself— people, especially girls, can easily tell a 
phony. 

2. Take an interest in the people you meet and remember their 
names. 

8. Always be polite. 
These are only a few, but they are a good start. You will think of 
others as these become part of your nature. 

Sincerely, 

Aunt Ruthie

LATE REDMAN RALLY FAILS; HARVARD WINS, 36-22 



by VIN BASILE 

(Continued from page 1) 
it Ofcrried for the points after. 

Tile next time the Harvard 
b^i got possession of the ball 
they started a 66 yard march 
which was climaxed when full- 
back Chet Boulris bulled over 
from the one. 

Late in the third period Har- 
vard got another marker when 
halfback Larry Repsher sprinted 
14-yards to put the finishing 
touches on a 66-yard Harvard 
assault. Boulris went over for 
the extra points and the Crimson 
was ahead 22-0 at the half. 

Harvard got one more TD in 
the thiid quarter when Ravenal 
went over, on a keeper. 

The Crimson scored once more 
in the third, for their final tally, 
when Mike Walsh threw a 14- 
yard pass to Repsher. Walsh 
then carried for the points after. 
OFF THE RECORD 
Boston sports writers have 
claimed that Harvard might 
have shut-out the Redmen if the 
Crimson mentor John Yovicsin 
had let his first team play the 
entire game. One thing which 
these writers fail to mention is 
that Coach Charlie O'Rourke 
used 37 players. It might also be 
added that most of the starting 
Redmen sat out the fourth quar- 
ter .. . Halfback Tom Delnickas 
played an excellent offensive and 
defensive game . . . C a r n e n 
Scarpa, a sophomore, showed 
plenty of promise for the time 
he played . . . 

The Redmen might have won 
their grid battle against Har- 
vard if only Lady Luck had giv- 
en them a taste of her charm. 
Passes thrown by both McCor- 
mick and Conway often were on 
target but the Redmen receivers 
couldn't seem to bold on to them. 



•62, Sports Editor 

UMass continues to be a late 
scoring ball club, but as Satur- 
day's game proved, they need to 
score in all the periods . . . 

The game was hard fought on 
both sides; it was good to see 
the Redmen showing the spirit 
they did ... And off the field, 
Jack Knight and his band added 
a much needed shot of fan sup- 
port.

Frosh Expect 
Good Season 

by BEN GORDON '62 

The freshmen gridsters held 
their first intersquad scrimmage 
last Friday afternoon. The re- 
cent hot weather, says Coach 
Dick MacPherson, has aided the 
coaching staff in getting the 
boys into good shape. 

The high spirit and outstand- 
ing playing displayed at the 
scrimmage is certainly a good 
omen, and coach MacPherson is 
looking forward to a good sea- 
son. 

Many of the players have been 
particularly impressive. 

Tom Kirby, Steve Forman and 
Don Brophy are doing outstand- 
ing work in the line. 

Quarterback Al Hedlon, half- 
backs Ken Kazer and Pete 
Shindler, and fullback Mat Col- 
lins, along with ends Jake Fleck 
and Paul Majeski show great 
promise. These players, among 
others, promise to provide the 
frosh with a strong team.

Perhaps for this reason, the Navy has taken 
valuable space aboard the "Nautilus" for the 
only soft-drink vending machine in the entire 
submarine fleet.

lubricated every 10,000 miles, 
or every tenth grease job. If 
they're not, they may tend to

eventually cause a need for new 
hubs. Again, you'll have to ask 
your garageman to check these 
parts. 

Clutches, distributors, differ-

and many other parts need per- 
iodic lubrication. Keep a lube 
checklist in your glove compart-

your car's complete lube needs. 

That's all it takes — a little

With John McCormick's aer- 
ials paving the way, the O'- 
Rourkemen scored three times 
in the final period against the 
Crimson scrub. 

The Redmen were unable to 
move the ball on the ground 
throughout the afternoon, while 
our hosts rolled up 326 yards. 

If their bench develops, the 
Crimson should make some noise 
in the Ivy League this fall. John 
Harvard's apparent lack of 
depth triggered our rally in the 
Stadium yesterday. 

Next In Sight 

Delaware opened their season 
with a 12-7 victory over Lehigh. 
When the Blue Hens come to 
Alumni Field next Saturday, the 
Redmen will be throwing their 
Wing-T formation against the 
man who invented it. 

Youthful Dave Nelson, enter- 
ing his thirteenth year as a head 
coach, possesses one of the fin- 
est football minds in the count- 
ry. His Wing-T is one of the 
most popular offensive weapons 
in the game today. 

Looking Ahead 

Each of our upcoming oppon- 
ents saw action over the week- 
end. Yale handed Connecticut a 
20-0 drubbing before 30,000 fans 
in the Yale Bowl. Rhode Island 
and Maine battled to a scoreless 
tie. New Hampshire protected 
their record of never having lost 
an opener with a 33-12 win over 
Northeastern. LU took it on the 
chin from George Washington 
Friday night, 18-14, and Colby 
handed Brandeis their second 
straight setback, 30-26.

Mr. Angell studied at the Uni-

at the University of Illinois, 
Cornell and Princeton. He taught 
this summer at Rutgers. 

At the University of Ulinois, 
Mr. Angell specialized in Audio-

students for preparation as 
speech clinicians in the public 
school systems. 

Mr. Angell transferred from 
the field of public speaking. Rea- 
sons for his change, according to 
Angell, were due to the fact that 
Audiology, involves various 
phases of anatomy, psychology, 
child development, and 



which require specialization. He

AFROTC Announces Appointments 



The University Air Force 
ROTC department begins the fall 
semester with four additions to 
its staff. The appointees are 
from left to right: Capt. Killion, 
Maj. Sprague, Capt. Cottantino, 
and Maj. Vinskey. (see picture 
above) 

Capt. Killion has been appoint- 
ed to the staff as Administration 
Officer and an instructor for the 
sophomore students. He has also 
been appointed faculty advisor to 
the Parachute Club, one of the 
University's recent innovations. 
"Next to flying, I like it here", 
states the Captain, and "I find it 
very interesting." 

Prior to his graduation from 
Boston College in 1951, he served 



by SUE GALLAGHER *6l 

in the Army Air Corps from 
April, 1943 to June, 1947, the last 
two years of which he spent in 
Germany. 

Since 1951 he has been a pilot, 
stationed most recently in Japan, 
where he was also Administration 
Officer. While in Japan his 
squadron, of wh'.eh he was com- 
mander, was appointed to help an 
orphanage near Mt. Fuji. 

Before the air force took over 
management of this orphanage, 
the Japanese government had 
bfiii allotting only about $1 per 
month for the care of 8. r » children. 

Collectively, his squadron 
donated $120 per month and 
rehabilitated the orphanage, 
showing the combination of mili- 



tarist and humanitarian duty by 
the U.S. Air Force. 

Maj. Sprague comes to be an 
Asst. Prof, of Air Science from 
a ten-year tour of duty with The 
Military Transport Service, the 
last three years of which he 
spent at Hawaii as Wing Inspoc 
tor and Plans and Programming 
Officer. 

His service experience, dating 
from 1941, ia highlighted by two 
combat tours during World War

Coupons And Coffee 

When Mr. Colvin, head of the food de- 
partment in the Student Union, brought up 
the hitherto unpublicized idea of selling cou- 
pons which could later be redeemed for food 
and drink in the hatch, he brought up some- 
thing which has been long overdue. 

It was pointed out by Mr. Colvin that an 
idea similar to this was brought before the 
Student Union Governing Board a year ago. 
The motion was tabled at that time and has 
remained tabled ever since. 

The venture is almost certain to be a suc- 
cess since there would be a saving of not less 
than five percent involved. For example, one 
would pay $o.0() for a book of coupons worth 
$5.26 or possibly $5.60. 

Of course, this idea is to the advantage of 
the Student Union as well as the students. 
Students with coupons or "Meal tickets", will 
no longer have to have cash on hand to eat in 
the "Hatch." They can simply buy a supply 
of coupons when they have the money and 
Btill be able to eat when they are "between 
letters home." 

This plan can easily work to the student's 
disadvantage. With a ready supply of cou- 
pons in his pocket, a student could easily be 
tempted to have a nine o'clock snack which 
he could ill afford. 

However, any student who doesn't real- 
ize his financial standing shouldn't be here 
In the first place. 

It would seem that it would not be neces- 

ivy to gain the approval of the SU(i Board 

for something which is so obviously to the 

advantage of everyone concerned. 



A PROPOSAL 

by Leonard 
Recently the Student Union Governing 

Board banned the playing of the Juke Box 

in the Hauh during those early and crucial 
hours of digestion. The CoUegian has 
I hanked them for this benevolent action. We 
would suggest, however, that this action does 
not go far enough. 

We would recommend that that coin-fed 
calliope 1m> silenced forever. 

We propose a student referendum which, 
if passed, would silence the uncultured beat- 
ing of our beaten society ; namely, the re- 
moval of the Juke Rox from the Hatch. But 
an obvious economic consequence of this pru- 
rjenl ait ion would be the raising of the Stu- 
dent Union Fee by some l'fty cents. Indeed, 
a small price to pay for a more sane and con- 
genial atmosphere.

mets have been wondering who makes up the menus which feature 
cream of leftover soup. "A greater choice of a la carte meals under

Good Music 
And American Preference 

by VERN PERO '63 

Is rock and roll good music? If your answer to this question is 
yes, why is it good music? If your answer is no, just what in your 
-pinion constitutes good rnusi-? Are the classic works by the great 
masters number one in your record library; or are you more prone 
toward jazz or mood music as the means of whiling away your spare 
hours? Just what is "good music"? The answer is simple and must 
be supplied by the individual. For each of us, good music is simply 
the music we enjoy. 

Those who condemn "pop*" music are as entitled to their ..pinion 
as anyone else. But to .-ay that Beethoven ranks head and shoulders 
above Elvis Presley is like saying that peppermint life savers are 
better than spearmint life savers because you like them. The entire 
question depends on your own preference as well as on your point of 
view. A good friend of mine is addicted to the works of several 
classical composers. While he derives no enjoyment whatsoever from 
listening to the music of Miles Davis, he has never once denied that 
in his own field Davis exertfl Ids own personal kind of charm. A great 
deal of disagreement could be easily avoided If the same broad-minded 
opinions could be extended to cover a wider range of musical en- 
deavor. This is certainly not the answer to the music problems which 
exist today in the Bates as well as elsewhere on campus, but the 
adoption of this attitude would probably make the solution easier to 
find. If all of those concerned cOltM accept the idea that each is en- 
titled to his own musical preferences, the resultant search would be 
for a means to supply everyone with something he or she lik«s. in- 
stead of for a means to make sure that the preferences of one group 
will predominate. 

The increased record sales today indicate a general increase in 
the desire to hear music, but the increase has been general and all 
inclusive and thus IK one type of music has gained u ?pe< ifi< advan 
tage. Due to the greatly varying prices of different recordings, by 
the way, certain groups, such as the Iftrpm and Extended Play A I 
bums sell more in numbers, bu1 the monetary return on all levels of 
sales, which is a much better meant of comparison, was used in deter 
mining the data used in making the ubove statement. 

Since rlassual music is noi outselling folk music and folk music 
is not outselling the classics (by the means of measurement men- 
tioned above!, ont may draw the conclusion that opinions concerning 

good music art at varied at tht covers on the alliums sold in i busy 

ii. ord store in I day. The best criteria by which to judge good music 
are your own experiences and preferences. One of the wonderful 
things about our country is that here there is no Nikita Clarkehcv 
spinning retards on Siberian Handstand and telling everyone what to 
like. You're free to choose, and the results of your choice are enjoy- 
ment and satisfaction. 

Ask around in your own dorm or house and find out what, your 
friends think is good music. You'll be surprised, as F have often been, 
to find a great diversity of musical interests even among your own 
close friends. 1 just asked the girls sitting next to me about their 
preferences and I got two related yet different answers. It's the same 
everywhere, 

Bo the next time the record player in your room starts out with 
the "one and-a two and a" which you just can't stand, think for I 
moment of what y..ur mw Villa-Lobas record does to the guy or gal 
next door and remember thai good music, like good food, is all a mat- 
ter of taste. 



A LAMENT 

for the Old Campus Store 

by James A. Merino '60 

As the present day Juniors, Bophomoyet, and 

Freshmen walk across the south lawn of Machmer, 
they little realize that they tread over the site of 
the old Campus Store, which was commonly called 
the C-Store; that they tread upon a bygone, much 
beloved institution which by the time of its demi 
had become a tradition. •«■. 

The old C-Stort formerly occupied, along with 
the barber shop and the post office, the first floor 
of North College, an ancient building sustained 
structurally on the same faith and pigeon dung as 
does LA Annex. 

The old C-Store also served as a coffee shop 
The main store was constantly crowded, but t! 
situation was mitigated by the fact that there opened 
off of the main store several small rooms, the larg- 
est of Which held about four tables so that if the 
< rowds of the main store annoyed one, it was al- 
ways possible to retire with one's acquaintances in 
to one of the side rooms, where one could enjoy g.. 
coffee and conversation. 

To purchase a cup of coffee in the old C-Store 
was a true adventure, especially for the Freshman. 
After one had finally managed to obtain and pay 
for one's coffee, one had to find a seat if one intend 
ed to drink his coffee in the main store. Meandering 
through the crowds, while holding the cup alofl 
the finger-tips, as an offering to deity one moved 
slowly about, keeping an eye open for a place. 

The seating space in the C-Store was on a strid 
caste basis. Due to the crowded conditions, there 
were three kinds of space: the four chairs around 
the table, reserved for Seniors and campus wheels; 
•satellite" chairs for the immediate acquaintance 
and "courts" of these leaders and wheels; and "cof 
fee cup space", which was a small space on the table 
reserved for the cups of those not worthy of a seal 
The "coffee cup space" was available to the pro 
teget Of the "familiars" who occupied the "satellite" 
chairs, and for lucky freshmen who happened to 
be acquaintances of either the proteges or the 
"familiars." 

These colorful "courts" in general sat. in the 
main store, retiring to the side rooms when engs i 
in highly secret campus power-play. 

The ('-Store did not have a Juke Box. 
But the world moves on; and the Word today is 
Progress. 

Today, we do nnt have foe j>mnll crowded C- 

Store. 

We have Progressed.

THE LAND OF 



by STU SALTMAN '61 
and MIKE BLUM f 60 



mi 



Behind the bandstand at New York's Randalls Island Jazz Fes- 
tival, a little boy was receiving a tremendous amount of attention. 
I'.aird Parker, the nine year old son of jazz immortal Charley "Yard- 
bird" Parker, posed bewilderedly for a series of photographers, as 
famous jazz musicians crowded around. Dizzy Gillespie handed the 
short-panted little one his horn. As a bulb flashed the miniature 
"Bird" mastered the upswept trumpet for two crystal tones. Few 
took this to indicate that Baird was a reincarnation, but obvious to all 
near was the determined effort of the jazzmen present to treat him 
with kindness. They remembered — lack of acceptance It what "Bird" 

died from . . . 

As I approached Birdland recently I noticed Miles Davis, John 
Cettrane and Paul Chambers taking a between-sets stroll. Their en- 
thusiasm as they entered a Broadway parking lot persuaded me to 
follow. I found them "flipping" over a magnificent Ferrari, Gran 
Turisimo Coupe. Miles was particularly excited: perhaps he will trade 
in his Mercedes 300SL in the near future? This aggregation of sports 
car connoisseurs returned to Bjrdland in the midst of a Maynard Fer- 
guson set. The band unfortunately no longer matches the exuberance 
of the bouncy leader. Trimmed to twelve men including two recent 
replacements from Boston (pianist Jacky Byard and bassist Gene 
Cerico. familiar to devotees of the Stable) the band waxed thin on 
charts which they have recorded in a lustier manner, and lacked solo 
strength aside from the soaring Maynard and innovator tenorist Lin 
Halliday. The Miles Quintet, which still has an imposing array of 
soloists despite the departures of "Cannonball" Adderley. "Philly" 
Joe Jones and "Red" Garland, was disappointing. Miles in a half hour 
set rarely delves into more than two tunes. Consequently, 1 heard a 
twentv minute playing of the Ravelesque "Flamenco Sketches" off 
"Kind of Blue" (Columbia CI 1355). On this tune all but new drummer 
Jimmy Cobb soloed. Despite excellent contributions by thoughtful 
Miles, rihhon-playing par excellence (take this to mean his music is 
a continuous ribbon of sound, rather than a series of notes, at least 
when he makes it) by Coltrane, a well constructed bass solo by Cham- 
bers and some good playing by new pianist Wynton Kelly, the over 
all effectiveness was lost due to the gigantic task of sustaining interest 
through two and three chorus solos. This problem was magnified once 
the rhythm section had lost interest in the whole affair and played 
autonomously without concern for what the soloists were doing. Group 
playing and rapport is at a minimum, but this aggregation affords 
an opportunity to hear as intelligent a string of solos as is possible 
from any one bandstand in a night of jazz listening. 

Highly recommended new releases — 

"Sonny Rollins" and the "Contemporary Leaders" Contemporary 

"George Russell— New York, N.Y." Deeca, features narration by 
Jon Hendricks and big band with GelsOfl Farmer. Evans, Woods, Col- 
trane, Roach etc. 

"Kind of Blue" mentioned above has gotten excellent notices all 
around; more arranged format than the in-person Miles quintet.

Fashion Fanfare 

by JIDY RKA8KIE *60 

The glamorou a | '. of a college girl is usually neglected. We 

are most often seen in Bermudas, or slacks and sweaters for every- 
day near, and skirts and knee son for dates. Phis being a country 
Campus with few opportunities for dressy dating limits our ability to 
show we do know how to be glamorous. 

In case anyone has forgotten, I'm going to furnish information 
on what ihe glamour girl will wear this fall and winter, hoping you 
will all have an opportunity to use many of my suggestions. 

Any girl should dress according to her fashion type. A girl most 
it home in sports clothes should try to choose a dressy fashion in 
keeping with the simph- lines she wears for ever? day. There are 
formals which are really formal, with low-cut neckline., lott of ruf- 
fles and other details. Such "extras" are attractive on certain fashion 
types, hut should be avoided by the sporty girl. For her there are 
■coop necklines and plain, tailored lines, making up for their sim- 
plicity by using a rich fabric or vibrant color. 

Probably a good place to begin is to quote "Glamour" magazine. 
They use the phrase "evening zyzzle," an exciting and catchy way 
of explaining the new look for college parties. Dresses are more 
sophisticated this year. We seem to have nearly completely escaped 
the full length, strapless grown with net and tiers of ruffles. Instead, 
in its place, I sleek, classic look, requiring a good figure. Kmphasis 
is on color and quality, and the knack of adding one's own classy de- 
tails, in striking jewelry, shoes of a contrasting color, exotic eye 
makeup, and a smart hairdo, different from what is always worn. 

White is the big color for fall. In informal date dr< 6S, it ap- 
pears in fine-quality jersey, softly pleated with perhaps the addition 

of a striking enmmerbund in blight red. blue or green. By picking up 
the color detail in shoes and bag, and using simple jewelry in pin and 
matching earrings, the ensemble becomes vibrant and makes its 
wearer feel so too. 

For those who prefer not to wear all white, black and white will 
always be (he perfect combination. Black is often most flattering 
near the face, use it here in a simple scoop-necked jersey or a dramatic 
velveteen jacket. For the skirt a wide sweep of batiste or printed 
organdy, black with a white design. Reverse the colors, white on top 
in again jersey, organdy or velvet. 

Away from black and white now to COLOR, every color and all 
color combinations. No one should hesitate to wear a color because of 
its clashing with hair or complexion. Redheads have been proven to 
look well in w<\. Everything depends on the shade, l se ol shades of 
a color, at coral, pink, rose or shrimp will be flattering to those who 
hesitate to w^ar real, real, red. 

Dresses this fall feature every imaginable color. Brocades in blue, 
champagne and gold, velveteens in vibrant greens, blues and aqua. 
A striking combination used in a fall fashion show was a champagne 
brocade date dress with a balloon full skirl, wide waist-cinching belt 
and tailored collar. Featured with it were accessories in blue: bright 
earrings of blue crystal matched in n cklace and bracelet, plain blue 
pumps and an evening bag <>» blue rabbit fur. Worn by a brunette, it 
would be equallj appealing on t blond. 

The best rule to follow is to be daring without losing sight of 
,;,,. fhten the ittractivenesg of an ensemble with acces-

FOOTBALL: ITS CAUSE AND CURE 



Next Saturday at the football game while you are sitting; in your 
choice student's seat behind the end zone, won't you give a 
thought to Alaric Sigafoos? 

Alaric Sigafoos (1808-1034) started life humbly on a farm 
near Thud, Kansas. His mother and father, both named Ralph, 
were bean-gleaners, and Alaric became a bean-gleaner too. Later 
he moved to Oregon and found work with a logging firm as a 
stump-thumper. Then he went to North Dakota where he 
tended the furnace in a granary (wheat-heater). Then he drifted 
to Texas where he tidied up oil fields (pipe-wiper). Then to 
Arizona where he strung dried fruit (fig-rigger). Then to Ken- 
tucky where he fed horses at a breeding farm (oat-toter). Then 
to Long Island where he dressed poultry (duck-mucker). Then 
to Alaska where he drove a delivery van for a bakery (bread- 
sledder). Then to Minnesota where he cut up frozen lakes (ice- 
slicer). Then to Nevada where he computed odds in a gambling 
house (dicc-pricer). Then to Milwaukee where he pasted camera 
lenses together (Zeiss-splicer). 

Finally he went to Omaha where he got a job in a tannery 
beating pig hides until they were soft and supple (hog-flogger.) 
Here he found happiness at last.

Next door to Marie's hog-floggery was an almond grove owned 
by a girl named Chimera Emrick. Chimera was pink and white 
and marvelously hinged, and Alaric was instantly in love. Each 
day he came to the almond grove to woo Chimera, but she, alas, 
stayed cool. 

Then one day Alaric got a brilliant idea. It was the day be- 
fore the Uinud ( hnaha Almond Festival. ( >n this day. as every- 
one know, all the almond growers in Omaha enter floats in the 
big par; <e. These floats always consist of large cardboard al- 
monds hanging from large cardboard almond trees. 

Alaric's inspiration was to stitch pieces of pigskin together 
and inflate them until they looked like big, plump almonds. 
"These sure beat skinny old cardboard almonds," said Alaric 
to himself. "Tomorrow they will surely take first prize for 
Chimera and she will be mine!" 

Early the next morning Alaric carried his lovely inflated pig- 
skin almonds over to Chimera, but she, alas, had run off during 
the night with Walter T. Scveridgc, her broker. Alaric flew into 
such a rage that he started kicking his pigskin almonds all over 
the place. And who should be walking by that very instant but 
Abner Doubleday I 

Mr. Doubleday had invented baseball the day before, and be 
was now trying to invent football, but be was stymied because 
he couldn't figure out what kind of ball to use. Now, seeing 
Alaric kick the pigskin spheroids, his problem was suddenly 
solved. "Eureka'" he cried and ran to his drawing board and 
invented football, which was such a big success that he was in- 
spired to go 00 and invent lacrosse, Mono|X)ly, run sheep run 
and nylon. ' © ita» m.« simim..

Capt. Costantino is phased 
with "his first chance to come 
back home". He like* the "atmos- 
phere of completf academic free- 
dom", as Provost MeCune ex- 
pressed it, because it j?ives him a 
"chance to think creatively about 
his job, instead of being forced 
to exhibit atereotyped behavior 
along classic channels." 

As a freshmen instructor and 
an observer and advisor on the 
drill field, Capt. Costantino finds 
the freshmen "interested and in- 
telligent", and is "pleasantly sur- 
prised with their general attitude 
of being here to learn something 
and their recognition of the op- 
portunity to get something from 
their college."

A graduate of Oberlin College, the Rev. Mr. Seely began Nil 
career as ;i pastor of a Vermont church, and has been a chaplain here 

for six years. He is assisted by 
the Rev. Russell Claussen who is 
in charge of the Christian Asso-

Jere Merger, Rev. Donald Bossart, 
and Rev. J. Lynn Springer, mem-

other two chaplains cooperate on 
matters concerning the religious 
life of the University. Their pres- 
ent efforts are directed towards a 
chapel for the three religions. 

Rev. Seely, assisted by Rev.

thing's coming over the intercom: 
"There will be a General Meet-

Roister-Doisters in the S.U. Final 
casting for "Our Town" will be 
announced." 

Are you sure you kno.v how to

one of the Harvard players. He 
looks mad.

to an officer in the Commuter's

Another Award For Lumenti 
Ralph (Lefty Lumenti, whom we wrote about in this column ast 
week, received another for his pitching feats this summer in the Class 

A Sally League. . . .. 

The former UMass ace was selected as one of two hurlers on the 
combined Class AA and A official AH-Star team. Lumenti also made 
two appearances for the Senators against the Red Sox over the week- 

" The Milford, Mass. native pitched three innings and allowed but 
two hits and no runs. In Sunday's game he came on in jjHj* in the 
seventh inning and easily disposed of Vic Wert*, Ted Williams and 
Gene Stephens. Lefty may have the distinction of being the last pitch- 
er to face Williams, if the Splinter decides to hang up his spikes.

Allison's round-tripper gave the Nats three players with 30 or 
more homers for the season. Harmon Killebrew tied for the American 
League lead with 42 and Jim Lemon added 33. 

Other clubs with a trio of 30-homer sluggers were the 1929 Phil- 
lies (Chuck Klein, Frank Hurst and Lefty O'Doul), 1941 Yankees 
(Joe DiMaggio, Charlie Keller and Tom Henrich), 1947 Giants (Walk-

A University of South Carolina student lost his bridgework when 
a 54-yard run gave the Gamecocks a 12-7 win over Duke last week. 

As halfback Ken Norton raced down field with the winning score, 
the student yelled so loudly that five upper teeth popped out of his 
mouth into the crowd of 37,000 spectators. 

When nobody turned in the teeth, the youngster had to search 
through the discarded programs and debris the next morning, before 
he found his choppers.

We've Got Plenty O Nuthin 



'CbNT KICK M& CfP TH' TEAM COACH- VOJOU WANT

by AL BERMAN '62 
Twenty-two to nothing. That 
was the score at the end of the 
first half of Saturday's Redmen- 
Ilarvard football game. 

It was at that time the Har- 
vard hand decided to add insult 
to injury by soundly poking jabs 
at UMass. 

Accompanied by explanations 
over the public address system, 
the Crimson musicians formed the 
letters to spell out, in order, "no 
dough," "no Inrnze," "no pres," 
"no hand," and, as a last blow, 
"no score." 

Following the spelling exhibi- 
tion, the Harvard band played 
"I've Got Plenty ()' Nu-thin." 

This sent the Purple people in- 
to a frenzy Thousands of wild, 
jeering Harvard freshmen gloated 
at the UMass delegation from 
acroM the field. 

Perhaps with all the attention 
focused on what the Redmen 
didn't have, many people forgot 



exactly what they did have. 

They had a cheering section of 
almost two thousand students who 
came all the way to Cambridge, 
just to spur their team; many of 
them not even knowing how they 
were going to get back to cam- 
pus. 

They had a hardy group of five 
musicians who bravely walked out 
onto the field during the Harvard 
jahhing'to play "Fight Massachu- 
setts" and cause the entire Har- 
vard band to stop playing. 

They had a team that, when 
losing by a score of thirty-six to 
nothing, still had enough drive 
left to score twenty-two points. 

Finally, they had a team that 
is more determined than ever to 
strip the feathers from the Del- 
aware Hens. 

If this is what our Harvard 
friends call "nuthin'," then we've 
got plenty of it, and we'll take 
plenty mote.

Hokkaido Gives SU 
A Bear As Token 



by SHARON CLARK '63 



Hokkaido University in Japan 
has been UMass' sister university 
since 1877. As a token of esteem, 
the students of Hokkaido Univer- 
sity sent us their symbolic bear 
to commemorate the opening of 
our Student Union in 1957. 

Through the courtesy of the 
U.S. Air Force, the bear was 
transported to this country with- 
out coat, and is now in the lobby 
of the Student Union. 

According to Provost Shannon 
McCune, "The bear has done quite 
a bit of traveling since then. At 
one time, a group of mischievous 
students kidnapped the beast, 
toured him through Boston, and 
finally deposited him in the lobby 
of the State House, where he 
remained until some irate official 
telephoned the University. The 
bear was finally transported 
home, where it was kept under 
lock and key, only to be exhibited 
on special occasions. 



Two years ago, the bear was 
established in the Colonial 
Lounge. Unfortunately, it didn't 
fit in with the decoration of the 
lounge and the bear was once 
aagin shifted to the shelf over the 
front door of the Student Union, 
where it can be seen today. 

In ancient Ainu tradition, the 
bear is a symbol of strength and 
power. Annual fights were con- 
ducted between the Ainu men and 
the bears until the death of one 
of the opponents. There are only 
about two hundred existing Ainus, 
and the once fighting Hokkaido 
Bears may now be seen clowning 
in the circuses. 

An old superstition says: that 
it is good luck to rub the nose of 
a bear. Provost McCune ex- 
pressed the wish to bring the 
bear down from its pedestal dur- 
ing exam week, so that the stu- 
dents can rub its nose before ex- 
ams. ^ 



Homecoming Floats 
To Welcome Rams 

by LARRY RAYNER, News Editor 



The Inter-Fraternity Council 
approved the rules for the Home- 
coming Float parade last Wednes- 
day night. The rules were ac- 
cepted as submitted by Dave 
Hefler (AGR), administrative 
vice-president of the IFC. 

The parade is scheduled to 
start at 6:30 P.M. in front of the 
Cage. Markers indicating where 
each fraternity, sorority, and 
dormitory will start will be put 
up Friday. 

The themes of the float parade 
will center around the Rhode Is- 
land foothall game. 

A complete set of rules unll ap- 
pear on next Friday's fraternity 
png: 

FLOATS AT GAME SAT. 

Hal Lane (Sig Fp) suggested 
that the floats might ho left over 
night around the football field. 
"The field would have to he lock- 
ed up for the night," Lane said. 
"but that can easily he arranged." 
It was pointed out that some of 
the floats would he built on 
trucks that have to be returned 



Friday night. Such floats will not 
be kept overnight. 

Dave Hefler also brought up 
the fact that each house is to turn 
in the names of all of its mem- 
bers to the Senate Elections box 
in the RSO office this Monday. 

GAGNON SPEAKS 

Victor Gagnon, President of the 
Debating Society, spoke to the 
IFC on incorporating the Intra- 
mural debates into the frater- 
nity point system. Gagnon argued 
that this would "develop more in- 
terest in the IFC program, widen 
the appeal of the fraternities by 
diversifying their activities as 
well as help the Intramural de- 
bating itself." 

He pointed out that debaters 
don't have to have previous ex- 
perience since the debates are for 
the enjoyment of participant*." 

The members of the IFC agreed 
that this was a matter to bt dis- 
cussed among each fraternity and 
decided upon at the weekly meet- 
ing next Wednesday night. 



Student Senate Elections 
Will Be Held Wednesday 



Student Senate elections are 
scheduled to take place next 
Wednesday, October 7. Nomina- 
tion papers have been available 
since last Monday, but so far very 
few students have taken them 
out. Because of this, papers will 
be made available to students to-

Phi Eta Sigma Offers 
Frosh Tutoring Plan 



In keeping with their stated 
policy to help raise the academic 
standards of the University, Phi 
Eta Sigma once more offers their 
free tutoring service to freshmen 
who are experiencing early dif- 
ficulty with their studies. Taking 
advantage of the high academic 
standards of their own members, 
this Freshman Honor Society will 
begin its tutoring program Octo- 
ber 6. 

This year's sessions will be 
held in various classrooms. The 
complete schedule will be pub- 
lished in Monday's Collegian. 

In the past ftow y«ars this pro- 



gram has aided many freshmen 
and it is the hope and aim of this 
year's Phi Eta Sigma members 
to surpass all previous efforts. 

Phi Eta Sigma is the campus 
male Freshman Honor Society. 
Membership requirement is a 3.4 
average for one semester fresh- 
man year. A national organiza- 
tion, Phi Eta Sigma was founded 
on this campus five years ago 
and has grown in size and 
strength. This year's extensive 
tutoring program reflects the 
growth in membership and the 
increase in activities of this year's 
group. 



caution — Don't run unless you in- 
tend to work. The Senate will be 
doing much this next year but no 
advances can be made without 
workers." 

During the past school year 
$107,000 was appropriated for 
use by the Student Senate. 

All dorm and married students 
will take part in the elections 
next Wednesday night between 9 
and 11 p.m. in the dorms. Frat, 
sororities, and commuting stu- 
dents will hold their elections 
from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. in the lob- 
by of the SU. 

In commenting about the up- 
coming election, Senator Dave 
Mraz '61, Elections Chairman 
said "In order to keep our high 
standard of student government 
each student should get out and 
vote. It only takes a minute, 
which is time well spent." 

Mraz Looks For Help 

Senator Mraz is currently look- 
ing for student help in running 
the elections. Any student inter- 
ested should sign up on the Sen- 
ate bulletin board in the S.U. 
There will be a meeting of all 
those who sign up on Monday, 
October 5 at 5 p.m. in the SU.

A recommendation that the Dining Commons re- 
route their lines so that the students will be able to 
wait inside during the winter months was passed 
Wednesday night by the Student Senate. The 
Senate also reappropriated $863.07 so that the Band 
and Prensioni'f tt>s may go to the Northeastern game 
in place of tin" Harvard game. In addition the Senate 
gave its 'Vmphatic and wholehearted support" to the 
Massachusetts Review, a new literary quarterly, by 
purchasing a full page ad for $K0. 

In setting forth the Dining Common! recommenda- 
tion, Senator Bob Armstrong '60 said, "Mr. Martin 
Mem a enthusiastic about it. With your (Senate) help 



it could be put into effect next Monday." In reply 
to a query by Senator Mike Moskos '62 as to how 
many students are currently eating at the Commons, 
Senator Armstrong said, "approximately 2,000 stu- 
dents." Although the recommendation has passed the 
Setlfttt and been approved by Mr. Martin, it will 
not go into effect immediately. The maintenance de- 
partment has not completed work on line 56. It is 
hoped that work will be completed by the end of 
ne\t week. As soon as work on line 56 is completed 
the lines will be rerouted.

PROF. JOHN H. FENTON 

The Catholic Vote 

The role the Catholic vote plays in the 
political scene was the subject of a talk by 
prof. John H. Fenton of the government de- 
partment fast Wednesday. 

Using the examples of the position of the 
Catholic Church concerning civil rights for 
Negroes in Louisiana and the "right-to- 
work" issue in Ohio, Fenton showed how the 
Church position affected the reaction of 
Catholics to the issues. 

Fenton found that "on the basis of any 
number of criteria, the evidence shows clear- 
ly that the people of French Catholic Louisi- 
ana are much more permissive toward their 
Negro neighbors than is Protestant Louis- 
iana. 

Concerning the right-to-work campaign, 
Fenton stater! that "one important aspect of 
the campaign that received little attention 
in the press was the prominent part played 
in it by religious leaders. In Ohio, the 1958 
"right-to-work" vote was made a moral is- 
sue to almost the same degr e e as civil rights 
in Louisiana. 

"The objective evidence testifies to the 
Validity Of the proposition that Catholics 
were swayed by their Church in casting their 
\fOte On " rif/ht-to-irork." 

According to Pentott, in the Ohio case 

the "Catholic hierarchy produced a differ- 
ential Catholic reaction to a political issue by 
making it a moral question." 

Fenton concluded that, "for good or ill, 
religion does make a difference in the politi- 
cal as well as the purely religious realm." 

Mr. Fenton is the author of Politics in 
the Border States, published in 1957, and of 
a number of scholarly articles in various pol- 
itical science journals. At present he is en- 
gaged in a major research project concerned 
with comparative state politics in the mid- 
west. Mr, Fenton served in the Budget Di- 
vision of the Kentucky State Government, 
1949-51, and was the head of the Manage- 
ment Services Division, Oak Ridge Institute 
of Nuclear Studies, Oak Ridge, Tennessee, 
1951-195.1. He has taught political science at 
Tulane University and Michigan State Uni- 
versity.

What Is Good Music? 

To the Editor: 

Since the Collegian is a university newspaper, and since among 
the functions of a university are the protection, cultivation and en- 
joyment of intellect and its creations, I offer these remarks in refer- 
ence to Mr. Vern Pero's essay on good music. 

The conclusion reached (and started with) by Mr. Pero is that 
preferring a certain kind of music makes that music good, and that 
this situation is essentially the same as preferring one flavor to 
another. 

What a delightful world, were this true! Thus, I could write a 
piece of music, and if I liked it, it would be good; standards of ex- 
cellence and the moaning of critics notwithstanding. 

I assume that Mr. Pero is ready to admit, that by his criteria, 
there is NO BAD MUSIC, or if there is, it is because no-one likes it, 
and thus he would escape the absurdity of being confronted with a 
piece of music both good and bad simultaneously, in the event one man 
liked it, and another did not. 

To deny that Beethoven does, in fact, 'rank head and shoulders 
above Elvis Presley' is to deny the worth of the years, the study, the 
work, and the suffering of Beethoven. It is to raise the instinctive, 
shallow style of Presley to a position it cannot possibly reach by its 
own merits. 

Mr. Pero would certainly agree that some athletes are outstand- 
ing, and others mediocre. Why then, does he imply that the same kind 
of a standard does not exist in respect to the achievements of intellect 
and spirit? 

Mr. Pero states that the 'best criteria by which to judge good 
music are your own experiences and preferences.' There is truth in 
this, to be sure, but if these criteria are not a part of a larger concept, 
one is denied the more subtle joys of understanding not only the 
music itself, but the tradition in which the music stands. 

Mr. Pero points out the unquestionable right of each man to 
quietly pursue his preferences and interests, and In this I whole- 
heartedly join him. But this aspect of our democratic society must not 
be permitted to so obscure the concept of excellence that we are un- 
able to recognize the objective and compelling standards of a cultured 
outlook. 

I cannot give an adequate definition of good music; I leave that 
to someone who knows more about music than I, but I can point out 
that if we have no standard except personal preference by which to 
distinguish good music from bad. We will NEVER KNOW the differ- 
ence, regardless of what we feel. 1 urther, if we make the effort to 
find out, the joy we gain will be greater and more lasting than that 
which we derive from a passive consumption of whatever happens to 
be in vogue. 

Tn respect to music especially, as well as any other cultural or in- 
tellectual endeavor, there are high and difficult standards to be met. 
If we do not attempt to meet hem, modern music will, in time, lose 
its value as a part of our civilization, and will become only a diver- 
sion for the mediocre element of society.

Iraq In Rebellion 

by VIRGIL B. DIXON 

The Middle Ea3t which long was the lite of many 
unnoticed assassinations has been finally provoked 
by the ruthless, cold work of Iraq's Premier Abdul 
Karim el-Kassem. During little over the one year 
of his administration more Arab Nationalists have 
been assassinated than in any other regime in recent 
history. 

All of the Arab world denounced the executions. 
Student demonstrators and religious leaders spoke 
out against this tragedy. In Beirut, Le Soir, a local 
newspaper, denounced this murdering puppet with 
classic Arabic-phrased clamor- "Dipped in blood to 
the roots of their hair, will the masters of Baghdad, 
never tire of assassinating people?" 

In Baghdad the people with a gleam for revenge 
in their eyes have struck forth in a riotous demon- 
stration only to be repelled by government guns. 
Although the Iraqi Army loyally fights the rioters, 
there has been growing unrest. Perhaps one cause 
was the execution of the popular Commander of the 
second Iraq Division. 

What is Kassem, who might be called the "see- 
saw man" for the way he balances himself between 
the Communist and the Anti-Communist pressures, 
doing? Communists accused of being involved in 
last summer's Kirkuk massacre have been put on 
trial in an Anti-Communist military court by him. 
It is also rumored that he is giving great thought 
to the possibility of freeing those hundreds of Arab 
Nationalists he now has imprisoned. Whatever he 
does, it will be done with the shrewdness and craft- 
iness that typifies the actions of the cleaner Arab. 

I am sure Kassem does not assassinate his broth- 
ers just to have a blood reputation hovering over 
his administration's records. Perhaps inside he is 
geared to do things for the betterment of his Arab 
brothers. I am not here justifying Kassem's assas- 
sinations; I am expounding that Kassem is of Arab 
blood; and therefore, his fellow Arabs are of the 
most importance to him. He with most forward 
looking Middle-Easterners will eventually stand on 
the same ground for a United Arab World. 



Concerning Old Chapel 



October 1, 1959 



To the Editor: 



I am sure that the friendly and patient C»lleginn reporter who 
visited my office for an interview Wednesday afternoon would not 
object if certain important correction! were made concerning her ar- 
ticle as printed in Wednesday' | .Ihfjian. 

CONCERNING OLD CHAPEL 

With the support of the Student Senate, the University Adminis- 
tration, and the religious agencies which support the Catholic, Jewish, 
and Protestant chaplaincies on the campus, the Old Chapel was as- 
signed by the Board of Trustees in May, 1958, as a religious center 
for all faiths. It is for ALL faiths, not just three denominations or 
the three larger faith groups on campus. Plans for use of Old Chapel 
as a religious center and for its renovation, including the addition 
of a convertible worship center (the gift of the Class of 1958) to the 
auditorium on the second floor, have been under consideration by the 
chaplains and University officials. 

CONCERNING THE PROTESTANT CHAPLAIN'S STAFF 

Protestant concern for students and others in the University com- 
munity is registered and channeled in two ways: (a) through the 
worship and parish lift of the local churches ami their denominational 
fellowships, and (b) through the Protestant chaplaincy on campus. 
Mr. Claussen and I are full time on campus. Mr. Berger, Mr. Bossart, 
and Mr. Springer have pastoral responsibilities In the Episcwpal, 
Methodist, and Congregational churches, respectively, and share, part 
time, in the work of the Protestant chaplain's office on campus. As a 
joint staff, we offer counselling, assist with various phases of the CA 
program, give classes in religion. We are not trying to "push for a tri- 
denmninational chapel," as the headline in Wednesday's article stated. 

Sincerely yours, 

Albert L. Seely 



The Curse Of A Cold 

There is nothing so bold 

As the curse of a cold; 

The end of your fun's 

When the nose starts to run 

And there's not a damn thing to be done. 

There are torments none worse 
Or thoughts more perverse 
Than the itching, the twitching, 
The cough and the sneeze; 
There are pills for this irk 
Although none of them work 
Regardless, spend what you please. 

As I am sitting here typing 
My nose I am wiping 
And thinking what people are told, 
There is nothing so maddening 
And saddening or even so bold 
As that terrible curse of the cold. 

A. Sufferer 



A Counter Proposal 

To the Editor: 

In reference to Mr. Leonard's proposal in last 
Wednesday's Collegian: 

Mr. Leonard, although he may mean well, has 
obviously overlooked the awful consequences of his 
hasty and foolhardy proposal. Better we should abol- 
ish the cherished American ideals of Liberty, Home, 
Mother, Apple Pie and Ice Cream than the Juke 
Box, for its removal would open a Pandora's box of 
horror that would destroy the University we know 
and love! 

A silence in the Hatch would rouse from its grave 
a terrible spectre of . . . (shudder) conversation! Its 
beginnings would be innocent enough, fumbling re- 
marks about the weather, courses, etc., but the pes- 
tilence would spread quickly until politics, human 
values, even (gasp) the Almighty himself might 
be discussed! 

Even something more horrible would follow . . . 
thought! It Is almost a certainty that this demon 
would metamorphose the campus we all hold dear 
into an institution of serious minded intelligent 
people (God forbid) and thus destroy all our tradi- 
tions! More Juke Boxes: one in every room! It is 
the only means we have of saving ourselves . . . from 
ourselves.

Pin the Tail On the Donkey. A 
pins tail on B. B kicks A out back 
door. A lands on top of C making 
out with date. C slugs A. A goes 
back in and slugs B etc. Party 
ends and everyone goes out for 
a friendly drink to rehash party.

(Continued from page 1) 
Speaking for the Band and the 
Precisionettes, Senate treasurer 
Pete Anderson '60 said "The rea- 
son why the Senate Finance Com- 
mittee did not appropriate funds 
last year to send the Band and 
the Precisionettes to the North- 
eastern game is because it was 
fell that one trip to Boston dur- 
ing the year was sufficient. How- 
ever they did not go to Harvard 
and should therefore be allowed 
to -jo to Northeastern." The Band 
and Precisionettes will travel to 
Northeastern as well as to the 
UConn. and UNH away games. 

Senator Jim O'Leary '62 set 
forth the motion for Senate sup- 
port of the Massachusetts Re- 
view, a new literary magazine to 
be published by the University. 
The Massachusetts Review will 
publish articles by famous men 
as well as articles by members of 
the faculty and student body. The 
cost will be $1 .25 per issue with 
a subscription rate of $4 annually 
Declared O'Leary, "This is a 
magazine that could put UMass 
on the national scene. The maga- 
zine's main purpose is to bring to 
light unknown writers by pub- 
lishing their articles alongside 
those of known writers" 

Although in favor of the mo- 
tion, Senator Joe Patten '62 
thought that the $80 would be 
better spent on twenty subscrip- 
tions to the magaine then on a 
full page ad. "If we give them 
$80 for an ad we get nothing 
tangible back. If we spend it on 
subscriptions we could put it 
where people could get their 
hands on it," he said. However 
the motion passed in its original 
form and the $80 was spent on 
the full page ad. 

During the course of the meet- 
ing the Senate appropriated $10 
for the purpose of posting signs 
in all campus telephone booths 
asking the students not to mis- 
treat the eqttFpmcBt. Speaking 
for this motion, Senator Arm- 



strong said, "One reason why 
they hesitate to put more phones 
on the campus is because of the 
destruction done to them." 

In reply Senator Carol Jones 
'61 said "I don't think it will help. 
If someone wants to do something 
to the telephone, a sign won't stop 
them. It's a waste of money.'' 

Senator O'Leary felt that with 
the alcohol ban in effect the 
amount of vandalism would de- 
crease. 

At the end of thn meeting Hob 
Zelis '60, Senate President, an- 
nounced all student appointments 
to the student-faculty Commit- 
tee. They are as follows: 

Advisory Board to foreign stu- 
dents: Jan Carlson, Ed Bradley, 

Audio Visual Council: Hal 
Dutton. 

Calendar Coordinating Board: 
Jan Reid, Bob Zelis. 



Collegian: Larry Rayner. 

Discipline Board: Don Kelley, 
Penny Bollard. 

Fin,- Arts Council; Barb Groll, 
Art Shaw, Ellie Wattendorf. 

Health Council: Elaine Fein- 
gold, Edith Schwartz. 

Library Committee: Kevin 
Donovan. 

R.S.O.: Dick MacLeod, Art 
Shaw, Jim O'Leary, Don Crotcau, 
Ginny Frye, Steve Paulding, 
Denny TVohig, Bill Knowlton. 

Ex officio members are: Bob 
Zelis, Pete Anderson, Judy Mad- 
den. 

Students Social Activities Com- 
mittee: Mareia Smith, Nancy 
Pizzano, Judy Konopka, Pete 
Kowalchek, presidents of the 
four classes, the President of the 
Stock-bridge Student Council, IPC

one Reveller Co-Chairman. 



Shaw Sponsors Petition 
For Cheaper Bus Service 



Petitions are currently being 
circulated to make available to 
students a special weekend ex- 
cursion rate of approximately 
four dollars for a round trip be- 
tween the SU (Amherst) and 
Boston. The price for such serv- 
ice is usually $8.25. 

These petitions, which were 
drawn up by Senate Pres. Hob 
Zelis '60, are being distributed 
throughout the campus by Art 
Shaw V>0. Within a week students 
will be asked to sign the petitions 
which read as follows: 

"We, the undersigned, hereby 
petition the Peter Pan Bus Line 
to provide for the students of the 
University of Massachusetts, a 
special weekend excursion rate 
(approximately $4) round trip 
transportation between Boston 
and Amherst". All petitions are 
to be returned to Art Shaw at the 
next Senate meeting. 

When asked to comment about 
this proposal, Shaw said, "I am 
sincerely interested in making it 
possible for each and every stu- 
dent that needs puhlic transporta- 



tion between these two points to 
receive it at the lowest possible 
cost." 

Armed with these petitions, 
Senator Bob Armstrong '60, head 
of the Senate Services Committee, 
will then confer with Mr. Peter 
Picknelly, Jr., President of the 
bus lines, to see what can be 
worked out.

Experiment In 
Communications 

The class of '62, under the 
guidance of its officers is launch- 
in& a new experimental program. 

An executive committee com- 
posed of representatives from 
each dormitory, sorority, and 
fraternity will be formed to act 
in an advisory capacity to the 
class officers. The group will 
m<et periodically. 

The purpose of the group will 
be to acquaint the class officers 
more specifically with the prob- 
lems of the class. The '62 leaders 
feel that as the class is so large, 
many problems are present which 
are unknown to the officers. 

Of course, the elected officials 
are available at all times, but 
this group would act as an inter- 
mediary agent and form closer 
relations between class and class 
officers. 

Another reason for the forma- 
tion of the executive committee 
is to interest the individual stu- 
dent in the activities of his class

Dr. C. W. King 
Receives Grant 

Dr. C. Wendell King, profes- 
sor of sociology at the Univer- 
sity of Massachusetts, has been 
named recipient of a research 
grant of $6,000 from the Society 
for the Investigation of Human 
Ecology, an affiliate of Cornell 
University. 

Dr. King, who will be on sab- 
batical this year, will leave the 
week of Oct. 5 for Jamaica, Bri- 
tish West Indies, where he will 
conduct research in the problems 
of social change on that island. 

rharactcrUtics of that island 
are ideal for such an analysis, 
according to Dr. King. Recent and 
rapid e c o n o m i c developments 

have occurred in a few comnumi- 
ties there with the advent of 
bauxite mining. In several other 

eommunitieti tourism nai Involved 

economic transformations over a 
longer period of time. To dis- 
cover the implications of these 
economic Forces, Dr. King pro- 
poses to compare a t< urist and a 
mining community with each 
other and both of theft ^'i'h a 
third community still anchored in 
the traditional agrarian way of 
life that dominates on the island. 
Dr. King has tauffht at Yale 
University, where he received his 
Ph.D. degree, and at Kollms Col- 
lege. Author of Social Movements 
in the United States and a Con- 
tributor to various sociological 
journals, he joined the University

THE MASSACHUSETTS COLLEGIAN, FRIDAY, OCTOBER 2, 1959 



With The Sororities 



by PAT O'CONNELL '61 



Hi! — first week in print and 
much to be said— so let's get to 
it. (cha, cha, cha) 



CHI O 

At a time when most normal 
sororities were busily moving in- 
to their newly decorated homes, 
we at Chi Omega were madly 
rushing out. Mississippi may have 
had their Miss America, but 
UMass has their charred chapter. 
Tenderly clutching Commons' 
meal tickets, the sisters are look- 
ing forward to better days ahead 
in their newly decorated, safety- 
inspected abode. Seriously though, 
we would like to take this oppor- 
tunity to express our apprecia- 
tion to Phi Delta Nu, SDT, 
dormitories, and individual facul- 
ty members for their generosity 
and hospitality ami our thanks to 
Dean Curtis and Mrs. Gonon for 

all their help. 

Congratulations to sister 
Sandy Hill, the new treasurer of 
the Parachute Club! Hope you 
can still count to ten on Sunday 

A.M. . ,. 

Some familiar faces have left 
us this year, including Carolyn 
Sharpo, Judy Nies who has 
transferred to Jackson College, 
Susan Playfair who has gone to 
Bard College, and Judy Gibhn 
who will be married next sum- 
mer. We certainly do miss them. 

Over the summer Elaine Prouty 
became Mrs. Dave Barrett (KS) 
and is now living in Amherst. 
Best wishes are also in store for 
newly engaged sisters Mane 
Sharpo, Barbara Parker, and 
Sandy Hill and to Denny Har- 
mony who was recently pinned to 
Dick Devlin. (LCA) 

Carrie Sherriff is Chi Os 
nominee for Homecoming Queen 
and (although we hate to men- 
tion her name again, there's no 
way out) Sandy Hill is our can- 
didate for Honorary Colonel of 

Mili Ball. 

This has been quite a busy 
week. Seniors had a wonderful 
time Wednesday night when 
TKE invited them to a roast beef 
dinner! We are also in the midst 
of upperclass rush, painting 
rooms, etc. But we will see you 
next Friday when we hope to be 
reporting in from 31 1 Lincoln 
Avenue. 

GAMMA CHI ALPHA 

As the youngest member of the 
UMass Panhellenic circle, Gamma 
Chi is undertaking many "firsts" 

this fall. 

The Hotel Northampton will be 
the scene of Gamma Chi's first 
pledge formal this Saturday. 
Dancing will be to the music of 
Tony Ravosa's orchestra. 

Under the direction of Jane 
Massimiano, Gamma Chi's are 
busy practicing for their first 
participation in the Intersorority 
Sing. Paulette Demitropoulos will 
he performing the Declamation. 

The float parade at Homecom- 
ing is another event Gamma Chi 
is looking forward to and the 
plans for the big night are ra- 
pidly shaping up.

Judy Linseott is Theta's new 
Corresponding Secretary. 

Congratulations to Fran S-z.lo- 
zek who is pinned to Tony Libis- 
zewski from A.T.C. 

Fat Swenson is KAT's nominee 
for Mili-Ball Queen. Judie Ivor- 
sen is the nomination for Home- 
coming Queen. 

For some mysterious reason, 
the brand new Hag is not flying 
in front of Theta anymore. Doe. 
anyone know why? 

KAPPA KAPPA GAMMA 
KKG welcomes their new house- 
mother, Mrs. Aro D. Nelson. Mrs. 
Nelson, a native of Gloucester, is 
a talented professional artist 
specializing in portraits. For 



their new Housemother,' KKG 
had an afternoon coffee hour 
from 7-9 p.m. Thursday night 
Sept! 24, so everyone could join 
the Kappas in welcoming her. 

Jennet "Snooky" Roberts, '60

PHI DELTA NU 

Alpha chapter of Phi Delta Nu 
was founded on Nov. 20, 1950 by 
members of Pan Hellenic Council. 
The members moved into their 
present residence at 389 North 
Pleasant Street in 1954. 

Last spring, the sisters of Phi 
Delt formed a corporation and 
purchased their home and started 
a complete renovation. Early in 
the fall, the Phi Delts cheerfully 
returned and began redecorating. 
To celebrate our newly bought 
home we are holding a house- 
warming tea on Sunday, Oct. 4, 
1959 between the hours of 3 P.M. 
and 5 P.M. 

We wish to express our grati- 
tude to our present advisors: Mrs. 
Judge, housemother of Knowlton 
Dorm.; Dean and Mrs. Fred Ca- 
hill; Mr. Robert Mannheim and 
his wife who is a selectwoman in 
Amherst; Mr. and Mrs. Elder of 
"Mutual" in Amherst; and Mrs. 
Elliott Marshall, our wonderful 
housemother. All their help and 
advice was appreciated. 

We are proud to announce the 
marriages of the former Dodie 
lermanowski, Karen Schmidt, Ar- 
lene Killiam, Barbara McGuire 
and Mary Lou Lanoue. All sum- 
mer weddings were beautiful! 

Our Alumna, Jeannie Marston, 
class of '58 who is now employed 
at Parke Davis Co. in Detroit, 
Michigan, is now vacationing in 
New England and visiting with 
her sisters. 

PI BETA PHI 
Pi Piii started the year off by 
installing a new rug, and new 
refrigerator. The girls are paint- 
ing the rooms, and rehearsals are 
under way for the Sing in No- 
vember. 

SIG DELT 
Because of a misunderstanding 
between S.D.T. and myself, as of 
yesterday afternoon, there was no 
news from the Sig Delts; how- 
ever, as a special favor to the 
'uUcgian, the President of S.D.T. , 
Flo Steinberg, has submitted the 
following hot news flashes from 
the Ivy covered Chapter house. 

1. Mimi closed the kitchen when 
she found 2 unwashed glasses 
there. 

2. Somebody left the stove on 
all night. 

& At Rush party, the Sisters 
smoked all the cigarettes and ate 
all the candy. Naughty, naughty. 

4. Weaselle got a phone call. 

5, Jackie Seagal was tossed out 
the window for singing during 
Quiet Hours. 

(?. A man called Judy and left 
no message. 

7. There were 2 pies in the 
kitchen last night — not there this 
morning. 

8. Sybil didn't do her house job. 
More inside doings of the Sig- 
Deltl next week.

Fraternity 
Extra- 
curricular 



With The Fraternities 

by STEVE SHI STERMAN, AEPi 
AEPi 



Last March a standard form 
was placed in all RSO boxes in 
the Student Union. This form 
asked the organization to fill in 
their name, advisor's name, ap- 
proximate women membership, 
approximate men membership, 
and check off whether their 
officers end major committee 
heads were fraternity men, 
sorority women, or independents. 

These extra-curricular organi- 
zations were then broken down 
into eight groups from which 
were taken the number of fra- 
ternity men, sorority women, 
total Greeks, and total indepen- 
dents. 

1. Honor and Recognition So- 
cieties: Adelphia, Mortar Board, 
Maroon Key, Scrolls, and Reve- 
lers; 

18 Greeks 
2 Independents 

2. Religious Groups: C.A., New- 
man Club, Hillel House, Cam- 
pus Religious Council; 

29 Greeks 
9 Independents 

3. Student Publications: Colle- 
gian, Index, Ya-Hoo, Frosh Dic- 
tionary, Quarterly, Handbook; 

29 Greeks 

13 Independents 

4. Class Officers: Classes of 
1959, 1960, 1961, 1962; 

16 Greeks 
Independents 

5. Student Professional Clubs: 
ASCE, ASME, Education Club, 
Management Club, Math Club, 
Pre-Med Club; 

11 Greeks 

21 Independents 

6. Musical and Drama Groups: 
University Bands, Operetta 
Guild, Chorale, Statesmen, Rois- 
ter-Doisters; 

14 Greeks 
8 Independents 

7. Miscellaneous Major Groups: 
Student Senate, IFC, Panhell, 
S.U. Planning Board, WAA, 
WMUA, SWAP Committee, Mili- 
tary Ball Committee; 

52 Greeks 

16 Independents 

8. Miscellaneous Minor Groups: 
Bay State Rifles, Air Cadet 
Squadron, Literary Society, IRC, 
Outing Club; 

9 Greeks 
12 Independents 
The survey of the Greeks* 
status in the campus extra-cur- 
ricular world shows that out of 
a total of 2C)»; officers and major 
committee heads, fraternity men 
hold 113, sorority women 62, and 
independents 81, for a total 
Greek participation of 175 or 
68%. This quantitative analysis 
does not determine the degree of 
participation nor does it include 
officers and committee positions 
in the houses. If the latter were 
considered, (at only four per 
house), it would change the per- 
centage to 77. 

Fraternity and sorority mem- 
bers represent 35% (approxi- 
mately) of the total student 
body— yet they fill at least 68% 
of all extra-curricular organiza- 
tion offices and major committee 
positions, or to be more realistic 
and include the eight sororities 
and fourteen fraternities, 88%. 



Last weekend a hirge delega- 
tion of our brothers attended the 
Harvard-UMass football game. 
After the game we joined with 
our brothers at Tufts and B.U. 
for a very enjoyable evening. 
Back* on campus, we are busily 
preparing for the IFC Sing, Skit, 
and Float Competition. Our foot- 
ball team, under Coach Ed Shane, 
has started the season success- 
fully with a 32-12 defeat of PSD, 
and a 20-0 defeat of LCA. 



AGR 

AGR has just rewired its 
house, and installed a new light- 
ing system. We have also bought 
a new stove to replace the antique 
we now own. At the house meet- 
ing, a new set of by-laws was 
approved. 

This weekend the house will be 
open for an informal party. 

ASP 

This Saturday night, we are all 
looking forward to our annual 
hayride, which will be preceded 
by a "Weenie Roast." The broth-

made for the IFC Skits, Sing, and 
Float Parade. 



LCA 

On Wednesday night, Lambda 
Chi played host to the sisters and 
pledges of Pi Fi at an exchange 
supper. Plans are now being 
formulated for a Parent's Day to 
be held in early November. LCA 
was well represented at the Har- 
vard game by Jack Knight who 
entertained during half-time.

brothers joined our chapter at 
MIT after the Harvard-UMass 
football game. This weekend we 
are planning a hayride followed 
by a Midnight Snack Party at 
the house.

Rarba and his "Four Sins" high- 
lighted last Saturday night's 
party. PSD sends out its heartiest 
congratulations to Don Mount '62 
-and brother Andy Soucy who

are also in order to Martha Trask, 
PSD's nomination for Homecom- 
ing Queen.

THE MASSACHUSETTS COLLEGIAN. FRIDAY, OCTOBER 2, 1959 



REDMEN TO MEET BLUE HENS AT ALUMNI FIELD 



UMass, Delaware Rated 
Among 



The Massachusetts 
will he seeking their second win 
of the season tomorrow, when 
they face off against the Blue 
Hens of Delaware at Alumni 

Field. 

UMass 20th in Nation 

The Redmen, currently ranked 
twentieth among the top 20 small 
college grid teams in the country, 
according to the first weekly 
United Press International rat- 
ings, will once again be entering 
a gridiron conflict as an under- 
dog. Delaware was selected as the 
number one team by the same 

survey. 

The Blue Hens are scheduled to 
arrive in Amherst some time to- 
night. 

Saturday's meeting will be the 
second clash between these two 
teams. Delaware, in a hard 
fought game, defeated UMass, 
28-14 last season at Delaware 
Stadium. 

The game promises to be very 
interesting. Much of the Redmen's 
success this year has been at- 
tributed to the installation of the 
Winged-T offense. This is the 
same formation that was inau- 
gurated by Delaware's Coach 
Dave Nelson. 

This will be the first time in 
eleven years that Nelson has had 
to face his own offense. 
O'Rourke Pleased 

UMass Coach Charlie O'Rourke 
is pleased with the new offensive 
alignment saying it has given the 
Redmen better balance in their 
running and passing game. 
Delaware All Veterans 

Coach Nelson will field an all 
veterans eleven, probably the 
same that defeated Lehigh last 
weekend, 12-7, at Delaware. 

Delaware's backfield is com- 
posed of quarterback Gampy Pel- 
ligrini, halfbacks Jack Turner and 
John Bowman and fullback Tony 
Suravitch. 

Turner was Delaware's leading 
ground gainer last year and 
promises to be a challenge to the 
Redmen defense. Delaware's back- 
field coach, Tubby Raymond con- 
siders Turner to be one of Del- 
aware's "all-time great backs." 

The Redmen are in good phy- 
sical shape for tomorrow's game. 



by VIN BASILE '62 

Sports Editor 
Redmen, O'Rourke will be fielding al- 
most the same starting team as in 
last week's Harvard game. 

The backfield will contain 
soph quarterback John McCor- 
mick, half backs Billy Reynolds 
and Roger Benvenuti and fullback 
Dick Hoss. 

In the line, Dave Swepson and 
John Burgess will be at the end 
positions, Dick Riley and Dick 
Thornton at the tackles, Ben 
Fernandez and Jerry Cullen at 
the guard slots and Vin Caputo 
at center.

Thin Man With Big Men 




Ben Fernandez, a 5'9", 200 lb. guard from East Boston seems to be posing a question to Coach Charlie 
O'Rourke, while teammates, guard Jerry Cullen and tackle Dick Thornton (73), look on. Cullen, a jun- 
ior from Woburn, is 5'11" and 205 lbs. Both he and Fernandez are the Redmen starting guards. 
Thornton, a regular tackle from Milton, is 6'2" and 230 lbs. This is one reason why the Redmen have 
such a stellar defense line.

Varsity Meet Sat. 

The Varsity Cms s-Country 
team will open its season here 
tomorrow at 2:00 p.m. in a tri- 
angular meet against Maine and 
Northeastern. 

The Footrickmen will find both 
these teams strong and with good 
returning veterans of long ex- 
perience. 

The Harriers on the whole have 
a strong team that can finish to- 
gether to provide fon a winning 
margin. Returning varsity men 
Ralph Buschman, Jim Keelon, 
Emo Barron, and Dick Atkinson 
will do well for the team if this 
year's sophomores can back them 
up. All of last year's Freshman 
team is back this year and among 
them are, Jim Hainer, Bob Weeks, 
Ron Young, Tom Foley and Joe 
LaMarre. These men have a lot 
of talent and will prove point get- 
ters as the season move?* along. 



Spotlighting The Redmen 



by PETE TEMPLE '60 



Way back in the dark ages of 
history, 1932 to be exact, UMass, 
then known as Mass State, had 
a football team. And a surpris- 
ingly good football team it was. 

The Statesmen also had a half- 
back, a young junior from Green- 
field named Lou Bush, who was 
possibly the best running back 
ever to perform on Alumni Field. 

On a crisp Autumn afternoon 
27 years ego this week, Lou Bush 
and his teammates put on one 
of UMass's greatest scoring 
shows, drubbing Cooper Union 
50-0. 

The Statesmen took less than a 
minute after the opening kick-off 
to register their first tally. Tak- 
ing the ball on his own 37 yard 
line, Bush swept around left end 



SPORTALK 



by HAL DUTTON '60 



It's beer forty long years of 
waiting for White Sox fans, but 
they won't forget the "Go-Go 
Sox" for a long time. 

They haven't forgotten their 
last pennant winner either. 1919 
was the year of the famous Black 
Sox scandal, the only darkened 
spot in the history of our national 
pastime. 

Eight of the American League 
champions contrived to throw the 
World Series to Cincinnati. Near- 
ly a year later "'hen the fix was 
finally uncovered the players in- 
volved were barred from organ- 
ized baseball for life. 

Say It Ain't True 

It was in this bleak atmosphere 
that a ragged little boy clutched 
the arm of one of the accused as 
he left a hearing and uttered the 
undying phrase, "Say it ain't so 
Joe." "Shoeless Joe" Jackson, be- 
lieved by many experts to be the 
greatest natural hitter the game 
has ever seen, had hit .351 that 
year. 

The srandal precipitated the 

movement which ended the rule 

I of baseball by the National Com- 



mission and placed it in the hands 
of a one man czar. In 1921 Judge 
Keenshaw M. Landis became the 
first Commissioner of Baseball 
and ruled the game with an iron 
hand until his death in 1944. 

Saturday Preview 
Delaware Experienced 

The Delaware squad that visits 
Alumni Field is bolstered by 
twenty letter men, at least one at 
every position. Tackle Mike Boyd 
is the only probable starter that 
hasn't won a letter. 

Halfback Jack Turner and full 
back Tony Suravitch garnered na- 
tional honors as juniors last 
year. Turner received honorable 
mention on the Little All Ameri- 
can squad while Suravittm got 
similar notation from the UP. 

Coach Dave Nelson spent two 
years in Maine at the helm of the 
Black Bears. His 1949 team tied 
UConn for Heanpot honors. 

McCormick vs. Turner 
This week's clash could well be 
the slow ground game of Turner 
and Suravitch against the heaves 
of John McCormick. 



and romped 63 yards to paydirt. 

This was only the start. Mo- 
ments later the hard-driving half- 
back again swung around end, 
this time from 5 yards out, to 
chalk up another State touch- 
down. Before the first period 
was over Bush had again crossed 
the Cooper Union goal. Slashing 
29 yards over his own tackle, the 
junior back ran his point total 
for the game to 18. 

Lou was given a rest during 
the whole second period, but came 
back in the next half to take over 
where he left off. He blasted 
through the Cooper Union line 
for two more TD runs, one of 60 
and one of 4 yards, before he 
called it an afternoon. 

^ The amazing halfback set a 
record that autumn day 27 years 
ago which still stands — five 
touchdowns in one game. And one 
:an only speculate how many more 
scores that record would hold if 
State's coach, Mel Taube, had not 
taken pity on the hapless Cooper 
Union squad, and had not made 
Lou sit out the second and fourth 
quarters. 

Bush carried the ball 11 times 
in all that afternoon in 1932 and 
racked up a total of 247 yards 
for an average of better than 22 
yards per carry. 

While the Statesmen were not 
always as successful that season 
as th*»y were against Cooper 
Union, it was never Lou's fault. 
Ho MOVed TD after TD all season 
to become the leading scorer in 
the nation. 



In his senior year, as captain 
of the Statesmen, Lou again ac- 
counted for more than 100 points 
and was invaluable to another 
successful Mass. State team. 

His gridiron feats on Alumni 
Field have rightfully won him a 
spot among UMass's all-time 
football greats. It has been a 
long time since, and it may be a 
long time before again. UMass 
can boast ft running back to 
match the great Lou Bush.

Chris Connor To 
Presen t Co ncert 

Jazz Singer To Appear 
Tuesday At Eight In Cage 

Chris Connor? jazz singer, will present a concert on Tuesday, 
Oct. 6, in the first of a series sponsored by the Concert Association. 
The performance will begin at 8 p.m. in the Curry Hicks Gym. 
Her program has not been an- 



nounced, in keeping with her pol- 
icy of selecting on the basis of 
audience response and request. 

It is thought that most of the 
selections will be drawn from 
some of Miss Connor's past hit 
records, such as "All About Ron- 
nie," "From this Moment On," 
"I Miss You So," "Lullaby of 
Birdland," and "Poor Little Rich 
Girl."

ID Photo 'Bug' 
Cuts Off Heads, 
Creates Flattops 




Approximately one-third of 
the Class of '63 have contracted a 
mild dose of the little known di- 
sease of "flattopitis" the effects 
of which will be noticed some- 
time during the next two weeks. 

Other students affected by 
this dread disease are the Grads, 
Specials, Transfers, Returning, 
and those (shudder) who forge* 
to make out I.D. cards at Pre- 
registration. The epidemic will 
affect nearly 800 of the UMass 
student body. 

Trained experts have been 
working on this problem for the 
past few weeks trying desper- 
ately to find an antidote. All 
attempts have been unsuccess- 
ful. There is no known cure! 

The source of the "bug" has 
been found, however. It was hid- 
den in the camera used to take 
the IJ). photos at registration on 
September 14. Any student who 
had his picture taken by that 
earner^ will be affected. 

It is expected that the extent 
of the disease will vary from 
student to student. The lucky 
ones will find only a slight flat- 
tening of the upper cranial area. 
Others more unfortunate will 
discover that the tops of their 
heads have been painlessly re- 
moved. 

The extent of resistance has 
been found to be proportional to 
the length of the victim's head. 
If the condemned has a short 
head he ran expect only slight 
change in his cranial structure.

Freshman girls attending may

As the concert was paid by

Adelphia And Revelers 
Begin Varieties Casting 

Adelphia and Revelers will begin the casting of Campus Varieties Tuesday, Wednes- 
day and Thursday of this week. 

This completely student-written presentation will again bo directed by Bill Chouinard. 
Steve Paulding and Don Camp will conduct choreography and music respectively. Doug 
Lane is the stago manager, while Gregg Elliot is in charge of properties and lighting. 



Director Bill Chouinard has an- 
nounced a Greenwich Village set- 
ting in which a young girl of 
wealthy background leaves home 
in search of "real life" only to 
meet the disillusionment of a 
"beat" generation environment. 

Following her tranformation by 
a Village sculptor, Andante, the 
"little rich girl" ftnds that even 
though she has a now life she 



is not satisfied. 

Realizing that the natural pas- 
sions of love, sympathy and sin- 
cerity are non-existent among her 
new associates, she is reunited 
with her hometown lover who is 
strong enough now to break the 
apron strings by which he had 
been bound. 

The show, which is presented 
for the benefit of the Adelphia- 



Revelers scholarship, has been ap- 
plauded as surpassing last year's 
highly successful show. 

Any who are interested in be- 
ing a part of the show are re- 
quested to appear at Bowker, 
rooms 113 and 114, October 6, 7, 
and 8 at 7 p.m. Freshmen boys 
possessing any acting, dancing or 
singing ability are urged to at- 
tend Tuesday auditions. 



Eleven Grad Students

Eleven graduate students at 
the University of Massachusetts 
have been awarded fellowships 
under the National Defense Edu- 
cation Act. 

Designed to increase the num- 
ber of college and university 
teachers in this country, the Act 
this year provided grants for 
997 advanced students through- 
out the U.S. 

Each fellow will receive $2,000

Nine-Volume 
Lincoln Work 
Presented UMass 

A nine-volume edition of The 
Complete Works of Abraham 
Lincoln has been presented to 
the University by Sen. John F. 
Kennedy as part of the Lincoln 
Sesquicentennial Celebration. 

The gift was made available 
by the Lincoln Sesquicentennial 
Commission, established by Act 
of Congress. "Each Senator is 
able to designate one university 
in his state to receive this work," 
said Kennedy. "I thought it was 
most appropriate that this edi- 
tion be presented to the Univer- 
sity of Massachusetts since Lin- 
coln, more than any other presi- 
dent, gave life and vigor to our 
system of land grant colleges." 

The nine-volume work, a pro- 
duct of five years' research, was 
originally sponsored by the Ab- 
raham Lincoln Association of 
Springfield, Illinois, with Roy P. 
Basler as editor, although the 
University's copy is ■ special 
edition issued by the Lincoln 
Sesquicentennial Commission. It 
was compiled from letters, man- 
uscripts, and, in some cases, 
newspaper accounts of otherwise 
unrecorded utterances. All con- 
tents are listed in their chrono- 
logical order.

Graduate students at the Uni- 
versity who received NDEA fel- 
lowships are: Gordon Bailey, 
Charles R. Long, Jon A. Sperl- 
ing, all studying botany; Don- 
ald H. Lambert, and Rosalind 
Stiftel, chemistry; Frederick J.

National Debate Topic 
Discussed by L. P. Beth 

Loren P. Belli of the government department discussed 
the national debate topic to the twenty-five who attended 
the recent Debating Society meeting:. 

The topic, which will be debated by the Club this year 
in intercollegiate competition, is "Resolved: that Congress 
should have power to reverse decisions of the Supreme 
Court." I - 



Mr. Beth pointed out that when 
the case in question concerns a 
matter of federal law or statute. 
Congress in effect has the power 
to overrule the Court decision by 
changing the law. 

To a limited extent. Congress 
can also get around a constitu- 
tional decision h> passing a new 
law to achie' ~ the same purposes, 
but employ a new approach 
which will awnd the constitution- 
al objections. 

Beth received ns doctorate at 
the University of Chicago and has 
taught at Bradley University, 
Vanderbilt, Harding College, Bos- 
ton University, the University of 
Leicester (England), where he 
served as a Fulbrigfcf Lecturer 
during 1957-1958 

He has taught American polit- 
ical thought, American constitu- 
tional law, and has contributed to 
audi journals as the American 
Pc.Uticnl .S>/r»c< Review, Snrinl 
Science, the Journal of Politico, 
and the New H'puhtic.

"Twelve members of the class- 
es of 1900 and 1961 whose "aca- 
demic accomplishment never 
seemed to match their academic 
promise" have been granted a 
one year leave of absence from 
Amherst College, Dean C. Scott

"Dean Porter feels that the

take the fullest advantage of tb» 
opportunities the school offers. 

"During the last academic 
year records of members of the 
classes of '59, T.0, and 'fil were 

reviewed to determine which of 

them were underachieving. It 
w.m derided not to take any ac-

classes to be examined. Tcach-

GRADING: 
By Numbers Or Letters 

The 1.0 standard of honor achievement 
in the quality point system serves as a goal 
for students here at the University. 

If, for example, one obtains a "B" in 
every course throughout one semester, his 
quality point average will be 3J) But is this 
"B" an 80, an 81. or an 88? Although there 
is an obvious and important difference be- 
tween a grade of 80 and one of 88, the stu- 
dents receiving them are given the same 
mark, the same number of quality points, 
and are classed together in the same scholas- 
tic i r vel — those who achieve a 3.0 average. 
Yet one student's work was almost a whole 
letter grade better ! 

The implication is, of course, that a plain 
numerical system or a precise quality point 
system that represents exact numerical aver- 
ages would be better and fairer than the 
present system now in operation. 

In support of the present system of let- 
ter grades, Registrar Lanphear says that 
"there is nothing the matter with the numer- 
ical system, but the trend Is in the direction 
of the quality point system with letter 
grades." 

He added that the numerical system used 
t > be in operation at the University, but the 
faculty felt that it called for grading too pre- 
feetlw that high achievement should be 
termed excellent or "A" with no other inter- 
pretation permissible for "A". 

However, as Mr. Lanphear points out, 
here at the University the discussion of the 
quality point system's worth and the com- 
parison of it with other grading systems 
stems from the fact that the individual in- 
structors, in spite of regulation, began to 
convert numerical grades into letter grades. 

At any rate, whether in operation or not.

Was The "Suicide' Game 
Worth It? 

The team's reaction to Delaware's overpowering play 
Saturday was for the most part disappointing for UMass 
fans; at the same time, however, this reaction was under- 
standable. Our players knew that they were playing a sui- 
cide" game. What else could a game against the ''number 
one" small college team in the nation be called? To put it 
simply, we were outclassed. 

It is unquestionable that Delaware stunned our team 
from the very start of the game. The result was only a few 
sporadic flashes of the caliber of football that should be ex- 
pected from UMass players this year. We know that this 
year's team is potentially one of the best in the history of 
the University. We hope that the players recognize this. 

UMass fans will continue to give unquestioning support 
to their team— win or lose. This support will be warranted 
because the team will, we are sure, fight to make maximum 
use of their potential. 



We have no more "suicide 



opponents in our schedule ; 
we do have at least two very rough games remaining. Our 
team this year can defeat B.U and UConn. The knowledge 
and experience slammed into the players in Saturday's game 
will provide the needed impetus for securing these victories. 
We KNOW that UMass can defeat UConn next Satur- 
day; UConn is not a "suicide" opponent It will take a hard 



fight to achieve victory. We a 
provide the necessary fight. 



, , confident that our team will

LETTERS 

An Open Letter 
To Protestant Students 

In the past several years, the Christian Associa- 
tion has grown to be one of the outstanding campus 
organizations for Protestant students. Worship, fel- 
lowship and instruction are a few of the programs 
that the Christian Association sponsors in an at- 
tempt to further the religious education and under- 
standings in the Protestant student community. 

Throughout this week, CA representatives will 
be approaching all Protestant students with an of- 
fer to join the CA. To be a "card carrying" member 
is one thing, but to activety participate in the various 
programs will not only be a benefit to yourself, but 
also help the CA increase the area of responsibility 
to the campus and neighboring communities. En- 
closed in the interest finder which you will receive 
is a page where you can indicate the areas that you 
would like to participate. 

To carry on the work of the Christian Associa- 
tion, money is also needed. In fact, the operating 
budget of over $2000 is met entirely by student dona- 
tions. Your contribution will help the CA to carry 
on its work in these areas. 

On behalf of the present members of CA, I hope 
you will earnestly consider joining and participat- 
ing in the Christian Association. 

Sincerely, 

Peter C. Anderson 

Vice President, Campus Relations

A Few Questions 
Fos Campus Leaders 

To the Editor: 

With little difficulty, I have until now withheld 
my viewpoint concerning the stifling of the 'Hatch" 
jukebox during breakfast hours, mainly because I 
did not believe the subject to be of sufficient con- 
sequence to warrant the effort. However, I am forced 
to admit that I was mistaken, for low and behold, 
I find some of our most notable campus leaders from 
such august organizations as the SU Governing 
Board, the Student Senate, and the Collegian re- 
peatedly issuing their solemn opinions on the mat- 
ter. I confess to have no great understanding of the 
delicate balance between rights and responsibilities 
involved, and hence would like to ask a few ques- 
tions of those personages entrusted with the leader- 
ship of our little college community. 

(1) As the Student Union and all its contents 
(except students, employees, and visitors) are the 
property of the student body at large, would it not 
be r<>asonahle that a reliable and legitimate effort 
be made to discover what course of action the 
owneis wish t.» take with their property? 

(2) Since this campus exists in the context of a 
detnocractlc society, is it no unwise to disregard a 
fundamental democratic assumption — man's rigM 
and capability as a rational creature to choose for 
himself (i.e. where to eat breakfast, what records 
to play, wlnn to play them, etc.) ? 

(3) If, by chance, these democratic assumptions 
are recognized as valid, would it not be fair to widen 
the range of choice (instead of eliminating the pos- 
sibility of choice as has been done) by providing f» 
record of silence and also a number of classical 
■elections for the jukebox? 

(4) Would the SU Governing Board condescend to 
act in a positive and constructive frame of mind 
(rather than the negative attitude recently e* 
hi Med), and at the same time strive to ponder on 
weightier matters of more importance to the welfare 
of the student body? 

Respectfully, 

Daniel R. Hemenway 'fil 



{Continued from column 1) 
the numerical system as such presents the 
exact, precise, and true picture of the stu- 
dent's accomplishment. It is fairer, for it 
•Iocs not place the student in a general 
scholastic category. He himself, his work, 
and his academic rewards are a category by 
themselves. 

Although teachers claim that they can 
not grade precisely, the fact remains that 
many of them DO grade numerically before 
conversion to the letter representation. 

The student deserves what he is capable 
of earning, not anything higher or lower in 
comparison with grades of other students.

Alpha Phi Omega 
Service Fraternity 



Alpha Phi Omega, nations 
service fraternity, was founded 
December 19, 1925, at LaFayette 
College, Easton, Pennsylvania. It 
is the largest fraternity in the 
World and its membership is com- 
prised entirely of men who ha\< 
been affiliated with the scooting 
movement, either as a scouting 
leader, cub, boy or explorer 
scout. 

The Manual of Administration 
of Alpha Phi Omega declares: 
"The purpose of Alpha I'hi Ome- 
ga is to assemble college men 

in the fellowship of the Scout 
Oath and Law, to develop friend- 
ship and to promote service to 

humanity." This imposing objec- 
tive' includes four major fields of 
activity in which our program is 
delivered. The four Melds which 
call for attention of each chapter 
are: Service to the student body 
and faculty; Service to youth and 
community; Service to members 
of the fraternity: Service to the 
nation as participating citizens." 
Kappa Omicron Chapter, the 
UMass group, was organized in 
l!>-~>t. The principal number of its 
members reside in Butterfield 
House, third floor North, not 
maintaining a house in concur- 
rence with National By-Laws. 

The activities of the UMass 
Chapter, during its brief history 
have been: (1) to assist during 
Freshman Week (abolished in 
'68) in the testing program in the 
capacity of proctors; (2) to direct 
the Co-Roc Sports event for in- 
coming Freshmen (abolished in 
'59); (3) to run a UMOC (Ugliest 
Man On Campus) contest for 
charity (an activity suspended by 
the Chapter, may be revived this 
year); (4) to manage guide tours 



and information booths on High 
School Day, Open House, etc. 

Last year, the local Chapter of 
Alpha Phi Omega managed tin- 
first booth entered by I 'Mass in 
the Amherst College Mardi Gras, 
an event which occurs each fall 
when Amherst plays Williams 
< 'oil eg,- at home. Until last year, 
f Mass vras the only large area 

college not participating. 

Declared James Merino, at one 
time Recording Secretary for 
Kappa Omicron Chapter, and now 
Historian; also former Editorial 
Editor of the Collegian, now an 
\ Bociate Editor: "Certain radical 
changes over the last four years 
have done away with the old proj- 
ects and service--, therefore, to 
fieshman who would become a 
member of APO today is given 
the opportunity — the challenge 
— of participating in the giving 
to an organization a new charac- 
ter through the shaping of n 
and bold policies to meet the test 
of University changes. It is for 
this reason that I and other up-' 
per-class members of the Frater- 
nity have chosen to leave policy 
clarifying positions open to the 
new blood) so to speak, who would 
be less concerned with the old 
dispensations."

Dear Bobhh : 

Hi! How's the gang back 
ht>me? I think of you all a lot 
whenever I have a moment free, 
but that is pretty infrequent he- 
cause if I'm not in class or study- 
ing, it turns out that I have some 
meeting or other to attend. 

For instance, tonight at 7 p.m. 
the (lames and Tournaments 

Committee is sponsoring a chess 

Club meeting in the Student 
Union. 

\nd then, tomorrow at 6;80 

p.m. there'll be a meeting in the 
Nantucket Room of the Union for 
anyone interested in working on 
the make-up and costumes com- 
mittee for Campus Varieties. 

Up her.- there's an outing club 
that makes all sorts of f unfilled 
trips like those we used to take, 
SO it should he just like old times. 
On Col um b u s Day week-end 
they're going to Lake George, In 
fact, the more I think about it.

Dear Aunt Ruthie, 

This is my first year here at 
the University, and I would like 
your advice on how to dress on 
campus. I've noticed all sorts of 
styles while walking between 
classes, but I can't quite make 
up my mind as to just what the 
"campus style" is. 

I know that this isn't exactly- 
like the letters you usually get. 
but in n way it's related to them, 
because a sloppily-dressed girl 
gets very few dates. 

Sincerely yours, 
A Newcomer 

Dear Newcomer, 

Yes, I'll agree that a young 
lady's dress is one of her most 
important assets. Very few guys 
will enjoy the company of a girl 
who gives the impression that 

she doesn't consider him impor- 
tant enough to dress carefully 



for the date. A guy wants his 

date to he admirer! for her own 

appearance and a credit to his 
good judgment. 

As for the "campus style", I 
don't think that one really exists 
for v\^ry person. Not all gin' 
can wear a slim skirt effectively. 
nor can everyone wear a pleated 
skirt. It's up to you as to what 
you look best in. Many gilds 
wear crew-necked sweaters or 
blazers over a tailored blouse. 
This looks very neat: however, it 
again depends upon whether or 
not you look good in this en- 
semble. 

The most important thine - 
about a campus style (or any 
style) is a neat clean appearance 
that come- from caring for your 
clothes, keeping them clean and 
pressed, and checking before you 
go out, just to make sure. 

Sincerely, 

Aunt Ruthie

the more I'd like to go with them. 
I'm going over to put my name 
on the sign-up sheet on the lobby 
counter of the Student Union 
right now, before I forget. The 
deadline is Thursday noon. 

Well, Bobbie, I just got back 
from the Union, and I met a 
friend of mine who's very active 
in Alpha Phi Omega, a national 
service fraternity. He was busy 
working on arrangements for the 
refreshments for the Freshman 
smoker they're holding tonight at 
7:80 in the Worcester Room of 
the Union. 

Friday night there was a rally 
and you should have seen the 
Precisionettes! They really looked 

trim. And the hand sounded pret- 
ty good, too. 

They have several bands here, 
and one of them is a Concerl 
Bi nd. Tomorrow at 11 a.m., there 
will he a meeting for all previous- 
ly registered freshmen women on 
the first floor of Memorial Hall. 
Any other interested freshmen 
women are Invited to attend and 
hring their instruments, if they 
have any. Interviews will be held 
at this time. 

Another interesting event which 
they hold here i^ the Apple 
Polishing Hours, during which 
the students and instructors from 
a certain department get ac- 
quainted over coffee and apples. 
The chemical and electrical engi- 
neering department is holding 
theirs tomorrow afternoon at 3 
p.m. in the Colonial Lounge. 
There's no admission charge, 
either. 

And Bobbie, another thing 
about this school which just 
fascinates me is the great num- 
ber of religious organizations, 
which sponsor all sorts of events 
from social affairs to service 
projects. The B'nai B'rith Hilh-l 
Foundation, for example, holds 
classes in its office beginning Oc- 
tober 6. They've posted the fol- 
lowing schedule: 

Basic Beliefs in Judaism — 4 p.m. 
Tuesdays 

Yiddish — 4:45 p.m. Thursdays 
Elementary Hebrew — 4 p.m. 
Tuesdays 

Intermediate Hebrew — 1:46 p.m. 
Thursdays 

The Collegian seems to have 
gotten jealous of all these other 
vities which are taking up the 
time of their devoted worker-, 

y decided to fight fire with 
tire by calling a meeting ihr»>- 
sefoee this Thursday morning it 
1 1 a.m. The entire staff is ex- 
pected to attend. 

Well, Bobbie, that's just about 
all that's new now. I'll w 
again the first chance I got. 

Bye; regards to all the gang. 

Your pal, 
Judy

S.O.S.— HELP— S.O.S. 



S.O.S. means HELP. Won't 
you answer the call? 

The Student Organization for 
Scholarship ( S.O.S. ), the newest 
service organization on campus, 
has openings for students inter- 
ted in working to raise money 
for scholarships. 

This year, unde* the direction 
of co-chairmen Sandy Williams 
'61 and Donald Croteau '61, the 
group plans a variety of activi- 
ties, ranging from cooperative 
work with the Campus Chest to 
the sponsorship of various 
worthwhile events. 



Another major aim of the 
group this year is the establish- 
ment of a scholarship bulletin 
board in the S.U. where the 
S.O.S. Committee can post all 
opportunities for financial aid. , 

The first organizational meet- 
ing of the year will be held Wed. 
night at 7 p.m. in the Barnstable 
room of the S.U. 

At this time, the new advisor, 
Mario DePillis of the history 
department, will be introduced 
to the group. 

All of last year's members and 
any other students interested are 
urged to attend.

Bob Allen and his Chief Operator, Mrs. Julia Chipman, discuss Long 
Distance records which will soon be converted to automatic processing. 

Meet Bob Allen— he's growing fast 
with a fast-growing company 



Robert E. Allen got his B.A. degree 
from Wabash College in June, 1957, 
and went to work with Indiana Bell 
Telephone Company at Indianapolis. 
"It looked like a growing company 
where I could grow, too.*' he sa\*. 

It was. Today he is an Assistant 
Traffic Supervisor there. He's in charge 
of six other supervisory people and 
about 100 telephone operators. 

Bob attributes his rapid progress to 
two main factors: the thorough train- 
ing he received and the steady growth 
of the telephone business, 

*'I was trained to be a telephone man- 



ager, not just a traffic si^ialist." he 
points out. 'Tve also had practical, on- 
the-job experienre in the plant, com- 
mercial and engineering phases of the 
business. So I'm equipped to handle 
new responsibilities all the time. And 
in this fast-growing communications 
field, that means I have more chances 
to keep moving ahead."

THE LAND OF 



by STU SALTMAN '61 
and MIKE BLUM '60 



mil 



Located on Spring Street, in a warehouse district a couple of 
blocks outside Greenwich Village, N.Y., is a very unusual jazz club. 
The Half Note Cafe is not esoteric or "neurotic" in atmosphere, but 
it should be the model for clubs if they are to continue as the chief 
listening-post for live jazz. 

Being in a relatively deserted neighborhood dissolves any park- 
ing problem; chances are, even on Saturday night, that your car 
won't be more than a few hundred feet from the club. While parking 
you may notice Rose Canterino's smiling face in one of the club's 
large picture windows. She is official greeter and first member of this 
family enterprise whom customers meet. She will seat you at a table 
which not only allows room to stretch out, but from which you must 
see the band; the bandstand is centrally located and elevated over 
the bar. If you sit at the bar you will be able to talk jazz with cheery 
Sonny Canterino. The two-dollar, weekday or two-fifty, weekend min- 
imum may be spent on delectable Italian food prepared by "big 
Mike" Canterino, owner, cook and dad to the Half Note operation. 
There may be other members of the family behind the scenes? 

The groups on stand are always fine and usually those of ad- 
vanced conceptions. Frequent repeaters at the club, most of whom 
make only rare appearances elsewhere, are Charley Mingus, Tony 
Scott, the Lennie Tristano-Lee Konitz group and the Al Cohn-Zoot 
Sims group. One of the reasons why Mike is always able to present 
top acts is the fact that there is ordinarily only one group on the 
bill. Between sets is not a soundless affair however, due to a fascin- 
ating juke-box with sounds ranging from Monk through Donaldson 
to Giuffre. This is also a good time to chat with the musicians, or 
to survey the walls splattered with record jackets, caricatures of 
jazz stars and jazz oriented contributions by village artists. One ob- 
vious happening is the many friends who meet here; customers are 
steady and this is a happy hangout for music people. 

From the musician's point of view, the Half Note has many ad 
vantages. Most significant, is the opportunity to work for a family 
that loves jazz (also the jazz-loving waiters here don't hassle because 
they are in a position to realize that the people come to dig). Most 
gmups that play here get to know the Canterinos fairly well, because 
engagements are long (usually two weeks to a month) and return 
billings frequent. Since the relations arc personal the musicians may 
act informally; they may bound into the kitchen to dip into a pot for 
a snack or as Mingus did in the heat of the summer, play in a tee- 
shirt. Secondly the musicians are not bogged down by the physical 
features of the club. There is a Steinway grarnd l • : i r i ■ * hich is always 



pond amplification system and 



in tune, 

assuring to drummers). 



lent acoustics (so n 



Physically and asthetically this club is outstanding. As an out- 
post for stretched-out, "digging" relaxation it is absolutely unbeat- 
able.

FOLEY '62 

OVef tile past Week, it is evident 

that in general, students like one 
kind of music for studying and 
another kind for pure listening 
enjoyment. 

The most popular choice for 
study music is classical and 
semi-classical music, or instrum- 
ental jazz. WMUA has sched- 
uled two such programs during 
the principal weekday study 
hours ShoiraiHe at 9:05 p.m. 
and Sounds of Jazz at 10:05 
p.m. 

On weekends when the aver- 
age listener listens purely for 
enjoyment, the trend is toward 
the up-beat in popular music. 
WMUA programs Crazy Rhy- 
thms Fridays from 8 p.m. until 
1 a.m. and another pop show 
Saturdays from 7-8 p.m. 

if you have your own opinion 

about the music you would like 
played on WMUA, let us have 
your suggestions. 

I'remieting this year for the

"During the year all these un-

by the Dean and warned that 
they were not living up to the 
administration's it ions for 

them. As a resul* of these warn- 
ings, nine Juniors and five Soph- 
omores succeeded in removing 
themselves from the undera- 
chiever category by the end of 
second semester. Four Juniors 
and eight Sophomores were dis- 
covered to be not underachiev- 
es, but students of "limited in- 
tellectual ability," Three Junior 
and six Sophomore? were kepi 
under close observation, their 
fate hinging on their work this 
semester, and the remainder of 
the group were furloughed. 

"The criteria used by the 
Dean's Office in deciding wheth-

he pointed out. 

The most frequent violation is 
that of parking in the wrong lot, 
this occurring particularly on 
stormy days. The penalty for 
this offense is a $1 fine for the 
first offense, and a $5 fine for 
each succeeding offense. Pro- 
ceeds from these fines are turned 
over to the Scholarship Fund. 
The number of tickets given SO

TIIK MASSACHUSETTS COLLB6UN, MONDAY. OCTOBER 5, 1959 



REDMEN SWAMPED BY MIGHTY DELAWARE, 42-12 



Hen Ground Attack 
Baffles UMass Line 



by VIN BASILE 

The Massachusetts Red men 
were outplayed all the way as 
they lost to the Univ. of Dela- 
ware, 42-12, at Alumni Field 
Saturday. 

The Blue Hen ground attack, 
led by halfback Jack Turner and 
fullback Tony Suravitch, com- 
pletely overwhelmed the UMass 

defense. 

The Redmen scores came in 
the second and fourth quarters. 

Halfback Billy Reynolds scored 
the first UMass TD when he 
scooted 11 yds. to pay dirt cli- 
maxing a drive of 90 yards in 
six plays. 

The second UMass tally came 
in the last minute and a half of 




'62, Sports Editor 

Pellegrini went over from the 
one after a 76 yard march. A 
Pellegrini to Coury pass was 
good for the points after. 

The fourth Blue Hen TD of 
the half clinched a 90 yard at- 
tack which saw halfback Jack 
Turner scampeiing seven yards 
to pay dirt. 

Delaware got one more in the 
third when halfback John Bow- 
man scored on a reverse play. 
Pellegrini threw to Suravitch 
for the points after. The final 
Blue Hen marker came on a 30 
yard pass play from halfback 
Schroek to end Bartek. 

OFF THE RECORD 

The Redmen unfortunately 
played their sloppiest game of 
the '59 season last Saturday. Ev- 
en the defense line which has 
been consistent in holding run- 
ning attacks did not, come up to 
par. Sophomore John Kozaka, a 



JOHN CONWAY 

play. 
Quarterback Jack Conway went 
back to pass, chased by three 
Delaware linemen. Despite what 
looked like an apparent loss of 
yardage, Conway picked his way 
clear of Blue Hen defense and 
ran 30 yards into the end r.one. 
UMass' only other chance to 
score came in the first quarter 
when -halfback Tom Delnickas 
snagged a 60 yard pass from 
Conway, which brought the ball 
close to the. Delaware fifteen. 

However a UMass fumble and 
a recovery by Delaware end Bob 
Reeder ended the Redmen threat. 

Delaware got off to an early 
start, when fullback Tony Sura- 
vitch raced 11 yards to a TD, 
completing a 35 yard drive in 
four plays, after only the first 
three minutes of play. A Pelle- 
grini - to - Broadbent pass was 
good for two points after. 

The Blue Hens scored ^>nce 
more in the first period when 
quarterback G a m p y Pellegrini 
threw a 30 yard touchhdown pass 
to Suravitch. 

Delaware scored twice again 
in the second quarter. 




JOHN KOZAKA 

6 ft., 190 lb. guard did a fine 

joh ... An example, of the Blue 
Hen running attack is the fact 
the Delaware outrushed the Red- 
men 350 yards to 121. Halfback 
John Bowman gained 113 yards 
in the first half alone. 

Tommy Delnickas suffered a 
dislocated elbow. Delnickas was 
injured late in the second period. 
He is expected to be out for 
three weeks . . . 

Halfback Bobo Roland is also 
on the injured list. He is report- 
ed suffering from internal bleed- 
ing. 



Stockbridge Loses 

The Stockbridge gridsters lost 
to Worcester Academy 40-6 lust 
SaT'irdav- The score was 8-6, 
Worcester, at the end of the first 
half, but five injuries to Stock - 
bridge players cost them the 
game.

Haven't We Met Before? 



UMie Footrickmen 
Win Meet, 58-36-28 

by JOE LIPCHITZ '62 

A strong University of Massa- 
chusetts varsity cross - country 
team came through to beat both 
Maine and Northeastern by a 
score of 28-36-58 in a triangular 
meet here Saturday. 

The leader of the Footrickmen 
was Ralph Buschman who placed 
second in the moot and was fol- 
lowed by Jim Keelon, Jim Hair. 
er, Dick Atkinson and Emo Bar- 
ron who placed fourth, fifth, 
sixth and eleventh respectively, 
in the. meet. 

Besides these scoring men the 
Footrickmen have other promis- 
ing runners who have yet to 
reach their peak and begin to 
score.

BOOTERS WIN 

Friday afternoon the Red- 
men booters won their first 
game of the season at the ex- 
panse of Clark, 5-0. The U- 
Mass squad was better; condi- 
tioned than it was in its op- 
ening loss to Coast Guard 
last week; as a result, the 
teamwork was much improved. 

Conch Blschoff, substituting 
for l*irry Rriggs, emptied the 
bench. Twenty four men saw 
vction during the sunny but 
?ool afternoon. 



It was over almost as soon as 
it started. The first time the 
Blue Hens got their hands on 
the ball they marched 64 yards 
in three plays for th* score. The 
next time they marched 66 yards 
in nine plays for another tally. 

Bowman, Turner, and Co., 
picked up 312 yards in the first 
half, while running out to a 28-6 
lead. Then Admiral Dave Nel- 
son's club coasted to a 42-12 win. 

Delaware definitely will be a 
factor to be reckoned with in 
the University Division of the 
Middle Atlantic Conference. Pri- 
or to the kickoff Saturday Bob 
Kelley of WDEL in Wilmington 
told us that the Blue Hens were 
a much better club than their 
12-7 opening victory over Lehigh 
indicated. By half-time nobody 
in Alumni Field would have ar- 
gued that point."

About the Opposition 
UConn will be hungry at Me- 
morial Stadium this Saturday. 
The Huskies, victors in their op- 
ener against Springfield 85-8,

at the hands of Tale and Rut- 
gers. Now they enter Conference 
play bent on retaining the Bean- 
pot for another season. 

New Hampshire finally won a 
conference game, their first in 
three years, as they rolled over 
Rhode Island, 45-0. The revita- 
lized Blue Wildcats have now 
won two in a row, equaling their 
1958 record in tihe victory col- 
umn. 

SpringfWld buried Northeast- 
ern, 36-8. Kansas stopped BU 
28-7, handing the Terriers their 
second straight loss. Hapless

The National Hockey League 
opens its season on Wednesday 
with the New York Rangers vi- 
siting the Chicago Black Hawks. 
The power laden Montreal Can- 
adians are heavily favored to 
win the league champiomlup and

Literary Magazine 
Released Soon 



A major event in the field of 
professional publication will take 
place at UMass this month with 
the issuance of "The Massaehu- 
settg Review," a new national 
magazine of the arts, literature 
and public affairs. 

Established as a quarterly con- 
taining poetry, fiction, art, liter- 
ary criticism, and articles on pub 
lie affairs, the magazine is edited 
by a faculty group. Editors of the 
magazine include: F. C. Ellcrt, 
head of the German department, 
general editor; Sidney Kaplan, as- 
sociate professor of English, 
managing editor; and Frederick 
S. Troy, formerly a member of 
the University's English depart- 
ment, who is now retired, asso- 
ciate editor. 

The Student Senate has in- 
dicated its support by the ap- 
propriation of $80 for the maga- 
zine. Scheduled for initial pub- 

Floa t Parade 
Boosted 

The 1959 edition of the Home- 
coming Float Parade will be held 
on Friday, October 16 at 6:30. 
The parade will consist of floats 
assembled by the fraternities, 
sororities, and dormitories. Feel- 
ing seems to be running very 
high, according to members of 
the Rally Committee. 

The float parade is the begin- 
ning of our Homecoming week- 
end, and is also the "kickoff" for 
Amherst Bicentennial Celebration. 

So far, according to rally com- 
mittee officials, there are three 
categories for judging — fraterni- 
ties, sororities, and dormitories. 
There has been some indication 
that some of our independent or- 
ganizations — committees, cheer- 
leaders, etc. — would also like to 
enter the float parade. If any or- 
ganisation would like to sponsor 
a float, its officers may contact 
Hal Lane at Sig Ep. He has ex- 
pressed a desire to see this year's 
float parade "the best and big- 
gest ever." The addition of an in- 
dependent category would add to 
the success of the parade and of 
Hompcoming, stated Lane. 



lication on Oct. 17, the magazine 
will be distributed to subscribers 
throughout the nation. 

Mr. Ellert, general editor, 
quotes: "We are, of course, aim- 
ing at a wide national audience, 
but we will also attempt to take 
advantage of our unique location 
and wide cultural associations 
with the educational institutions 
surrounding the university to 
make the "Review" a focus for 
our New England inheritance and 
an outlet for the rich critical and 
creative talents of our region." 

The first issue will pay tribute 
to poet Robert Frost, with a lead 
article on "Frost and Emerson" 
by A I van S. Ryan, professor of 
English at the University of 
Notre Dame. A drawing of Mr. 
Frost, the work of Donald R. 
Matheson of UMass art depart- 
ment, will appear on the cover. 

The October issue contains new 
poetry by Mr. Frost, William 
Carlos Williams, e. e. cummings, 
John Holmes and Louis Coxe. 
Eight "new" poets will be in- 
cluded in a special section which 
will be a feature of each issue.

The Sophomore class officers 
have set up a new committee to 
give students a direct say in the 
function of their class. 

Approximately forty repre- 
sentatives will be selected from 
the dormitories, sororities and 
fraternities to aid the class in 
an advisory capacity. 

Those people who are interested 
will be able to sign up tomorrow 
through next Thursday at the 
Lobby Counter of the Student 
Union. 

People chosen for this commit- 
tee will attend policy meetings 



and aid in the government of the 
class. It is expected that their 
ideas and suggestions will reflect 
the opinions and views of their 
respective dormitories, sororities, 
and fraternities. 

The type of people needed are 
those who have an interest in 
their class, and the intelligence 
and integrity to perform such 
functions so as to provide the 
maximum amount of efficiency in 
this group, according to Bemie

REV. DAVID POWER 

Reverend David Power begins 
his seventeenth year on the cam- 
pus as Chaplain to Catholic stu- 
dents. In March of this year, he 
had left this position to serve as 
Director of the Catholic Charities 
in Springfield. He returned to 
the campus in September as full- 
time chaplain by the appointment 
of Bishop Weldon of the Spring- 
field diocese. When asked if he 
was glad to be back, Fr. Power 
laughed and commented, "If I 
didn't want to, I wouldn't be 
here." 

As chaplain, Father Power's 
primary concern is to counsel stu- 
dents. He conducts a non-credit 
course in Catholic doctrine which 
is open to all students. Father 
Power is also the director of the 
Newman Club of the University, 
heads the Newman Clubs of the 
nine Connecticut Valley colleges,

Senate Elections Are Not 
A Popularity Contest 

The Student Senate might easily be called 
the most important organization on campUs. 
It is perhaps noted for the fact that its mem- 
bers bear the responsibility of allocating over 
$100,000 worth of student funds to various 
organizations. The task of distributing and 
accounting for the money from the Student 
Activities Tax, Class Taxes and other fees 
is perhaps the largest, but not the only, con- 
cern of the Senate. 

The list of duties that fall to our Senate 
is a long one ranging from the formulation 
Of the general policy by which we are gov- 
erned to deciding whether or not student 
funds mav be used to send a nursing student 
to a convention. The whole list, however, can 
be summed up briefly: The main function 
of the Student Senate is to consider and 
further the best interests of all of us. We 
might mention here the untiring effort of 
this organization spent in bringing us Boston 
to Amherst bus service. 

h should be fairly obvious that the 
Senate Elections being held today are very 
much more than a popularity contest. Time 
and patience and no small amount of honest, 
unselfish devotion are demanded of a Stu- 
dent Senator. People who run for the Senate 
With the idea that a place in campus politics 
is merely the first station in the collegiate 
CUrsus hmmrum or a step in the ladder lead- 
ing to the title of "Biggest Man on Campus" 
are usually disappointed and a disappoint- 
ment to their constituents. They are not will- 
ing to exchange a lot of sweat for a little 
glory. 

It is not surprising, then, that we some- 
times wonder whal our senators are doing, 
sometimes we wonder why they aren't doing 
more. Some of us may even wonder who and 
where they are, For we often fbrget to vote 

Or can't take the time to investigate the char- 
acter an. I goals M our would-be representa- 
tives, and they may never have to consult 
OS or ask for our opinions. 

The ultimate result of today's elections 
depends equally on candidates and constitu- 
ents. We sincerely hope that both parties 
will seriously consider the obligations and 
responsibilities involved — and act accord- 
ingly.

But sir, they're on red bags . . 

by JAMES A. MKKINO '60 

Some time ago I entered the Hatch on a Saturday evening to eat 
my supper. Since the hot food line w >' ll,n ^ r - :in<1 ! (M not wish 

to wait the time (it's not worth it) tot a hot Weal, I decided to have 
for supper two ham salad (truly out of this world) sandwiches with 
tomato; the prfee of the two sandwich.-s I calculated to be sixty cents. 
When I got to the cashier (there la • |l " dement of the adventurous 
in eating in the Hatch during the rush hours, one must admit) I was 
charged seventy cents for my two sandwiches. 

"But madam," I said, "these sandwiches are only thirty cents 
apiece. Ham salad, twenty-five cent.-, with tomato adding five cents 
to the price, hence thirty cents." 

"But sir," she said, "they're on red bags. And according to my 
diagram, that means thirty-five cent- each." 

"But they've made a mistake," said I, innocent and naive as I am, 
'the sandwiches are only thirty cents each." 

"But the bag is red," she protested. 

"But it's a mistake," I said. 

"But the only way I can charge you thirty cents is if you have 
the hags changed to another color. Blue is the color for thirty cents. 
Then I can charge you thirty cents." 

"But . . .", I began. I did not finish, however. I rested content to 
close the discussion. It was becoming painful to continue. I thought 
it worth the extra dime to retain some shied of reason. 

The moral of my little story, friends, is this: when you purchase 
your sandwiches in the Hatch, watch the bag*. 



An Evening With the House Mother 

by JAMES D. LEONARD '60 

Just the other night I was talking with my house mother. Be- 
lieve me. such talks are not as complete a waste of time as one might 
think. The conversation wandered from one topic to another, even- 
tually lingering on the coffee houses that dot the campus scene. This 
dear lady who had lived through two world wars, the initiation of the 
income tax. and prohibition, gloried in the small feat of living through 
one cup of coffee at one of the local 'beat' coffee houses. At best, this 
woman was unimpressed. As to the atmosphere: "It was nothing but 
cigarette smoke and bad air." The sum and substance of the appeal 
of the cafe: "It's just a matter of waiting three-quarters of an hour 
for a seventy-five cent cup of coffee." 

I have never visited these places, but I would tend to rest on the 
sage advice of my elders. 



Hungarian Children Prefer 
Robin Hood To Lenin 

EDITOR'S NOTE: The following article is reprinted from the 
magazine "Youth and Communism," (June, 1959) published by Thr 
Start European Student and I outh Service, a CanmumUt organiza- 
tion, This article is ill nsi rati r< of the different concepts of education 
in communist and democratic < mmtries. 

The success of indoctrination in Hungarian schools still seems to 
fall far short of expectations, ["his is eomflrmed by frequent press 
reports and pronouncements al official gatherings urging more in- 
struction in ideology. For exan . Hajdu Bihari Napla, a regional 
daily carried an article com] i ts nbotti the inadequacy of political 

education in schools. Much i ' I blame was laid at the feet of teach- 
ers whose personal amh'nal.n.-. in political matters results in uncon- 
vincing indoctrination in the classroom . . . 

Another newspaper complained that in a recent survey a majority 
of Hungarian school children selected the legendary English outlaw, 
Robin Rood, OVtt Marx and Lenin as their ideal hero. When naked 
to explain their selection, they said that they were attracted to Robin

Where Are We Going? 

by JAMES A. MERINO '60 

It is my opinion that the current plan for the 
accommodation for the future students of our grow- 
ing University should he subjected to a severe, dis- 
passlonate reappraisal. My appraisal will not be dis- 
passionate. 

The new men's dormitory presently being erected, 
in the anticipation of the completion of which some 
students arc living three to rooms planned for two 
in the older dormitories, is expected to hold 750 stu- 
dents. The capacity of Van Meter, finished com- 
pletely two years ago, is estimated at 450. Now 
dormitories of such capacity are not obnoxious in 
themselves; what is objectionable is the fact that the 
factors of economics and of the necessity to erect 
dormitories quickly have resulted in student hous- 
ing which grudgingly provides the barest essentials 
in accommodation, the dormitories themselves being 
of substandard to inferior construction. I give as 
examples Baker and Van Meter Houses. (I confine 
my comments to men's housing, having no oppor- 
tunity, obviously, to study female accommodations.) 
Baker is quite literally falling apart. And last year 
some students in Van Meter tried an experiment. 
Noticing a sizable crack in the cement blocks of the 
wall of their room, some students, after obtaining 
the cooperation of the occupant" of several adjoin- 
ing rooms, performed the following: leaving one 
room lit, and having extinguished -the lights in the 
following rooms, the group observed through a crack 
in the wall of the dark room farthest from the il- 
luminated room, the light in that illuminated room. 

Wheeler house is at least some improvement. We 
will see how the new dormitory fares. 

From housing we go to eating. 

Since the Master Plan calls for a dining com- 
mons to be built somewhere near Fernald Hall, no 
attempt has been made to expand the dining facili- 
ties (save for the conversion of the old Snack Bar 
area of the present Dining Commons into line six). 
The result has been the crowding of existing facili- 
ties- beyond even maximum permissible capacity. 
The effect this has on the preparation of food should 
be obvious; and the situation is further aggravated 
by the obnoxiously long lines. It is known that some 
students are not eating the mid-day meal they have 
paid for, in order to be on time for a one p.m. class, 
following an eleven a.m. class. 

The idea of vast Dining Commons I look upon 
in dim light. It is bad enough, is it not, that stu- 
dents at our University are treated for the most 
part by the general faculty and the administration 
as though they were completing grades thirtepn 
through sixteen of high school, let alone herding 
them into mass eating areas. (Incidentally, I always 
smile when some illustrious UMass faculty mem- 
ber writes some etiolated composition on how we 
students behave as though we were in high school; 
after all, as I maintained above, that's the way they 
treat us; we may as well play the role, and some 
of us play it admirably.) 

It seems to me that each of the monstrous dormi- 
tories should have been provided with a separate 
kitchen and adequate dining room. Since the growing 
size of future classes, coupled with the notion of 
the "Integrated" dormitory, vitiates to a considerable 
extent the feeling of unity on a class level, an at- 
tempt should be made to effect the same sense of 
cohesivenesS within the smaller community of the 
Individual dormitory. I would even suggest a branch 
library be established in the giant dormitories of 
the future. But such things are not thought of by 
our enlightened planners. 

It could appear that the UMass graduate of 2000 
will DC a fit candidate for the offices of the or- 
ganization men of Madison Avenue; which is hardly 
a fate to be desired. 

I should like to Inquire of some of the "progres- 
sives" among administration, faculty and students 
— on this campus the question: What are we pro- 
gressing to? Where are we going? 

The signs as I interpret them point to the fact 
that we are progressing to an American version of 
a Red Chinese Commune.

The Campus Beat 



by ED 

What a fitting tribute to Chris 
Columbus, Clod. 

Supposing this thing should 
sink while we're out in the mid- 
dle? 

Are you kidding? I've checked 
it from stem to stern and it's as 
seaworthy as the Titanic. 

Has anyone else ever attempted 
to cross college pond before? 

That's just the pjint, Clod. It's 
a real first. They said it couldn't 
be done, yet by daybreak we'll 
reach the opposite shore. Stand 
by to cast off. 

I'm not much of a sailor, Shad. 
My mother tried to interest me 
in other things, like bowling. She 
wanted me to keep off the 
streets and get in the alleys. 
He sank out of sight. 

Shad, we've been drifting for 
hours. Do you suppose we're off 
course ? 

Not a chance. Clod, there's two 
types of people. "The Proud and 
the Brave". You're not either. 
But anyway, go see it at the S.U. 
tomorrow night. 

I'm going to try to get some- 
thing on the short-wave. Here's 
something. 

"Ladies and Gentlemen, now a 
word from the President of the 
United States." 

"Fore!" 

That's no good, Clod. Try 
WMUA. Their staff is meeting in 
the Middlesex Room tomorrow at 
7 p.m. Also I want to find out 
about the meeting of all sorority 
and fraternity social chairmen at 
AEP tomorrow night at 7:30. 

I'm through fooling with the 
radio. I brought some books along 
just in case. Here's a tough prob- 
lem. Name the nine greatest 



HAMMOND '63 and ERNIE MANDER '60 

Americans. 

That's not hard, Clod. Can't you 
figure that out? 

Well, who are they then. 

Give me some time to think. I 
can't decide on the shortstop. 

Here's another good problem, 
Shad. See if you can get this one. 

The following groups will meet 
tomorrow in the Union: 

a. Bridge Club at 7 P.M. 

b. Commuters Club at 11 A.M. 
in the Bristol Room. 

c. Entire Collegian Staff meet-

I'm thirsty, Clod, How's the 
water supply? 

There never was one. 

Never mind. We'll make some. 
That's the "Beginning of Sci- 
ence". Incidentally, that will be 
the topic of Professor William 
Ross of the Physics Department 
at the Chemistry Club meeting 
tonight at 7:30 P.M. 

We made it, Clod. There's the 
Union. Now I'll be able to attend 
the senior class meeting tomor- 
row at 11 A.M. in the Public 
Health Auditorium. 

I wish I were in the Class of 
'62 so I could sign up at the S.U.

Oct. 14th for membership on the 
class officer's advisory commit- 
tee.

With the warm Indian summer 
days of this fall it's difficult to 
realize that we'll soon all have to 
wear coats, not just trench coats 
but real cold weather coats. 

There have been many changes 
in coat styles for fall. One of the 
more popular is the return of the 
belted coat. Belts are on every- 
thing. Trench coats are belted — no 
longer is the Jack Webb-like coat 
in hiding. They are styled with 
wide lapels, flap pockets, double- 
breasted closings, and the wide, 
wide buckled look. The full length 
camel coats are also appearing 
this year with belts. Basically, 
there are two styles — the classic 
boy-coat to be worn both with 
and without its distinctive belt, 
and the more softly tailored 
camel coat with a fuller back, 
rounded collar and the inevitable 
belt. 

Another change is the newness 
of fur, especially racoon. The 
classic camels have been attacked 
by the fur fad, on collars and 
sometimes even on cuffs. How- 
ever, manufacturers have been 
careful. Most collars are detach- 
able. They are taking no chances 
on the durability of the fad, mak- 
ing their styles easily conver- 
tible to the old no-fur look. 

A different use of the fake fur 
is seen in the new wild and 
wooly coats of red, white, and 
loden green. These are made from 
an orlon-cotton pile, are warm, 
yet light and completely wearable 
for those who dare. 

The classic tweed still is tops. 
The Harris Tweeds this year 
sport many new color combina- 
tions, yet retain their ideal 
sporty lines. Some have loud 

. * I MO'tli'- ,Jil\| itli i.,... ...... 

scarfs. The dressy I »e*d coats 



have smooth rounded lines, a 
soft collar, slightly full back, 
raglan sleeves, few bOWl and 
other distractions a common 
sight last winter. 

For campus class- to-Student 
Union wear, there is an amazing 
assortment of shorts, of three- 
quarter length jackets, tweeds and 
solids, some hooded, some not, 
lined warmly with quilting or 
pile. Suede is always a popular 
choice, in rich chocolate brown, 
neutral, green and blue. There is 
a short suede jacket featured this 
year with a convertible belt and 
a neat flap pocket which may he 
initialed. Charcoals, browns and 
black are usually the safest pur- 
chase with the addition perhaps 
this year of loden green. 

Let's hope for some cold 
weather so winter styles can 
really be worn — these cottons are

STUDYING CAN BE SCREAMS 

If studying is bugging you, try mnemonics. 

Mnemonics, as we all know, was invented by the great Greek 
philosopher Mnemon in 526 B.C. (Mnemonics, incidentally, 
was only one of the inventions of this fertile Athenian. He also 
invented the staircase which, as you may imagine, was of 
inestimable value to mankind. Before the staircase people 
who wished to go from floor to floor were forced to live out 
their lives, willy-nilly, on the ground floor, and many of them 
grew cross BS bears. EspeciaHj Demosthenes who was elected 
Consul of Athens three times but never served because he was 
unable to get up to the office of Commissioner of Oaths on the 
third floor to be sworn in. But after Mnemon's staircase, 
Demosthenes got up to the third floor easy as pie— to Athens' 
sorrow, as it turned out. Demosthenes, his temper shortened 
by years of confinement to the ground floor, soon embroiled his 
countrymen in a series of senseless wars with the Persians, the 
\ isigoths and the Osallala Sioux. lie was voted out of office in 
517 B.C. and Mnemon, who had made his accession possible, 
was pelted to death with fruit salad in the Duomo. This later 
became known as the Missouri Compromise.)

Rimple and useful they are — not only for history but also for 
everyday living; for instance:

"Why Alpine?" you ask. Taste that fine, fresh flavor. Enjoy

cigarettes is never graceful; in fact, with mittens it is nigh im-

Retailers Eye 
Cited Goals 

"Advance planning is the most 
important ingredient for sound 
business practices", stated Robert 
Steiger, Merchandise Manager of 
Steiger's Department Stores of 
Springfield, yesterday at the 
Second Annual Conference on 
retailing held at UMass. 

Mr. Steiger, speaking of "Plan- 
ning — The Key of Success for 
Small Merchants", centered his 
remarks to those businesses with 
a yearly volume of $750,000 or 
less. 

Other noted speakers at the 
conference were Mr. Maurice 
Lazarus, Pres. of Wm. Filene's 
Sons in Boston who spoke on 
"Retailing as a Career" and Ben- 
jamin E. Stacey, Boston . Econo- 
mist who spoke on "Business 
Condition's Effect on the Re- 
tailer." 

The day-long session included 
nine pane] discussions which 
covered all phases of retailing. 
Topics included were "Govern- 
ment Aid to Small Business," 
"Methods of Financing Food 
Stores" and "Food Store Opera- 
tion 3 — A book Ahead" during 
which Mr. Prank Catnldo, Presi- 
dent and Treasurer of the Hol- 
yoke Food Mart stressed that the 
middle sized store is in dire need 
of looking ahead. This is because 
of the low volume of business 
available, and keen competition. 

The conference was arranged 
by Robert G. Drew-Bear, as- 
sistant Professor of Marketing at 
the university with the assistance 
of Dr. Harold F. Hardy, and Ed- 
ward A. Zane of the School of 
Business Administration at the 
U of M. 

About 150 retailers from all 
over the State of Massachusetts 
attended.

Miss Connor did not appear

hour. Her musicians: Bill Ruben- 
stein on piano, Bobby Jasper on 
flute and tenor sax. Eddie de

guitar; each took turns soloing 
with his respective instrument on 
such selections as Til Remember

Charley's Bounce. 

Also well received were Ruben- 
stein's piano solo, New Rumba; 
Jasper's flute solo, It Could Hap-

favorite with his fine job on the 
drums, and de Haas and Lowe 
were applauded on their fine 



playing.

As a type of singing, she leaned

for naming her favorite "specific" 
song, she found it impossible,

Maine Frats 
Require 1.8 

Orono. Me. — (M\) —Freshmen 
at the University of Maine will 
need a 1.8 point average tot the 
fall semester in order to be rushed 
by fraternities, according to 
a new ruling announced here by 
the Inter fraternity Council. The 
former minimum point average 
was 1.5. Another scholastic 
change involves men who do not 
make 1.8 during the fall semester. 
They may be rushed at midsemes- 
ter of the spring semester if they 
have a 1.8 accumulative. Previous- 
ly a straight 1.8 based on spring 
midsemester marks was required. 

An L"FC spokesman said that 
the council has been concerned 
about the relatively low marks 
of fraternity pledges in recent 
years. "The council wishes to 
place a higher premium on 
scholarship," he said.

North jumped South's 1C bid to 
show 19 points honor account and 
a biddable spade suit. South then 
goes into the 1C Gerber Conven- 
tion to ask his partner for Aces 
with 32 points in the partnership. 
North then answers one Ace and 
South proceeds to ask for kings. 
Finding that North has all the 
kings the bid is 6NT. 

6NT is cold but only one team 
made 7 with the help of a defen- 
sive lapse. Fast leads the DQ and 
North wins with the DK. South 
then leads the SQ from dummy, 
and it holds so he leads the SJ 
and West again refuses to take 
the trick. Therefore South takes 
his 5 clubs, 1 hearts and another 
diamond giving him 13 tricks and 
leaving West holding his SA to 
sluff.

THS MASSAC HI'SETTS COLLEGIAN. WEDNESDAY. OCTOBER 7, 1959 



Facts 'N Figures 



by DICK BRESCIANI '60 

From one tough opponent to 
another — that's been the path- 
way of the UMass gridsters dur- 
ing the first four weeks of the 
season. There shouldn't be cries 
of outrage over the scores of the 
past two weekends. 

Anyone with football knowl- 
edge knew the strength and 
prowess of our opponents. There- 
fore the panic button shouldn't 
be pressed— not yet anyway. 
UMass is a school drenched with 
a defeatist complex. 

As soon as a game is lost, 
even though the opposition was 
better, the moans and groans 
echo across the campus. We have 
many students who would rather 
obliterate teams like Union, 
59-0, every Saturday than lose 
to such clubs as Harvard, Del- 
aware, B.U., etc. 

But our University is growing 
— and whether it's liked or not 



— our athletic program will ex- 
pand also. Yes, we're trying to 
reach the big leagues in foot- 
ball. We're not afraid to admit 
it. 

But it's something that will 
take a little time. And it must be 
remembered that schedules are 
made three and four years in 
advance. All is not bleak. There 
are six more games remaining 
this 4 fall, and if the Redmen can 
win three or four of them the 
season can't be termed a failure. 

One of the biggest is Satur- 
day's clash with UConn. The 
Huskies have dropped two games 
in a row and will be out to get 
back on the winning trail. The 
Redmen are in the same boat. 

The winner of this game will 
stand a good chance to capture 
the Yankee Conference Beanpot. 
UConn doesn't want to relinquish 
its hold on a title it has been win 
ing with some regularity.

Sigma Delta Psi, the national 
athletic fraternity, which has a 
chapter here at the University 
of Massachusetts, is once again 
prepared to take in new mem- 
bers who can pass the entrance 
requirements. 

Sigma Delta Psi has been on 
this campus since April of 1955, 
and was originally founded at 
Indiana University in 1912 and 
late* incorporated in 1930. The 
purpose of this athletic frater- 
nity is the promotion of physical, 
mental and moral development 
of college students. All male 
students in colleges in the 
United States are eligible, but 
no student will be admitted who

A candidate who has won the 
varsity letter or an intramural 
championship in any sport may 
substitute this letter for any one 
requirement in Sigma Delta Psi, 
except swimming. A substitution 
may be made but once for one 
sport. 

Any interested candidates 
should report to either Coach 
James or Coach Footrick in the 
Cage.

HARREERS ROMP 

The University of Massachu- 
setts varsity cross-country team 
romped to an easy win over Union 
College here yesterday by a score 
of 20-43. 

The first man over the line was 
Tom Hoffman of Union but from 
there on the Footrickmen took 
over. Ralph Buschman, Dick At- 
kinson, Jim Keelon, Emo Barron, 
and Jim Hainer, all of the Univer- 
sity, were the next five men to 
score. The Harriers then put four 
more men in a row across the 
finish line before Union could 
score their second man. Union lost 
a second place when one of their 
runners dropped out of the race 
with less than a half mile to go 
of the four and a half mile course. 
This would have given Union a 
first and second place in the 
meet but would have mattered 
little over all. 

This is the second win in a row 
for the Harriers who are ready 
for B.U. and UConn on Oct. 20 
at B.U.

IFC Adopts 
Amendment 

by LARRY RAYNER 
News Editor 

An amendment which should 
"plug the hole" in the Interfrater- 
nity Council by-laws was passed 
last Wednesday night. 

The amendment, which was 
suggested by Richard Gaberman 
(AEPi) at last week's meeting, 
was adopted because the members 
felt, as Gaberman stated, that 
"the codes and by-laws of the 
IFC are too specific; any unfore- 
seen incident may not be covered 
by the present code. 

"Under this amendment," ex- 
plained Gaberman, "the Judiciary 
of the IFC will have the power 
to act in cases in which a frater- 
nity brings unfavorable criticism 
to the fraternity system or the 
University." 

The amendment must now be 
discussed at the houses during 
the next week and will be voted 
upon for final enactment at next 
week's IFC meeting.

Moriarty 
Saluted 




Don Moriarty has recently been 
honored by the Special Events 
Committee of the Student 
Union in 'This Month We Hon- 
or." 

In the spotlight this week || 
Don Moriarty, president of Adel- 
phia. A History major from Mon- 
son, Don is planning a career 
either in government work or as 
a teacher on the secondary level. 

During his four years at the 
University, Don has participated 
in many campus activities. He 
has served as Rushing Chairman 
of Theta Chi, vice-president of 
the class of 1960 for two years, 
and Publicity Chairman of Cam- 
pus Varieties. A past member of 
the Maroon Key, he has also par- 
ticipated in the Newman Club, 
Campus Chest, and- the SWAP 
conference. 

When asked what he felt was 
the greatest improvement at the 
University this year, Don replied: 

"The newly created interest of 
Massachusetts citizens in the 
University since the controversy 
over the faculty pay raise bill." 

Don also feels that the most 
needed improvement on campus 
is "a healthier attitude by the 
students toward the policies of 
the administration. Invariably 
students will cast judgments with- 
out making an attempt to under- 
stand the reason behind these 
policies." 



47 Per Cent Of Students Turn Out 
To Elect Thirty-One Senators 




by AL FINKELSTEIN '61, Senate Reporter 

Thirty-one senators were elect- 
ed by all residential areas and 
the class of 1962 as 47% of the 
students turned out to vote 
Wednesday. Of the 31 elected, 11 
were returned to office along 
with 20 new senators. Eight seats 
were not up for election. 

A close battle in Brooks House 
saw veteran campaigner Art 
Shaw '61 upset by incumbent 
Mike Moschos '62. Moschos re- 
presented Van Meter last year. 

Only 10% of the Commuters 
turned out to vote although they 
have been allotted four seats in 
the Senate. In commenting on 
this, Dave Mraz '61, Chairman 
of the Senate Election Commit- 
tee said, "The voting of com- 
muters was very poor consider- 
ing that they get four Senators. 
In the dorms, however, the vot- 
ing was heavy and many students 
were defeated by four or five 
votes.

Campus Is Scene 
Of Filmstrip 

The University of Massachu 
setts has been chosen as the site 
for a filmstrip depicting student 
life. Scenes for the filmstrip, 
"The Same Old Circle", written 
by Emil Paul John, were shot on 
campus yesterday. 

Last spring Mr. John visited 
the campus to interview students 
for the script of this filmstrip. 
which will be used to stimulate 
thinking about student-giving to 
world and local missions. It is 
being produced by the Hoard of

both teachers and other staff 
members. 

Pres. Mather will resign at the 
end of thi^ year and la expected 
to leave the camptM sometime late 
next spring. 

The governor called the trus- 
tees together to review "the many

Two weeks ago the Student Senate and 
the class officers passed a constitutional 
amendment pertaining to the number and 
apportionment of Senators. This was done 
in order to prevent the number of senators 
from growing to unworkable proportions, 
while still keeping pace with the expansion 
of the University. 

It seemed at the time that the new sys- 
tem was a fair and equitable one, one that 
would work well. However, after Wednes- 
day's elections, one wonders whether those 
who drew up the plan were able to do simple 

arithmetic. 

Following the ratio of allotting one sena- 
tor for the first 225 students, and one for 
each 150 students above that, in a single res- 
idential area, the 675 commuters were en-

The four commuter senators were duly 
elected— by forty raters. That makes it pro- 
portional representation of one senator to ten 

students. 

Something's wrong somewhere!

Of late our ears have b<

in our society, these lost sou! 
bistros, run-down apartments 
even have a prescribed unii' 
sized sweatshirt, baggy troust i 
. . . you know the bit. 

In the realm of art we an 
daubing and sculpture of sicl 
and impressionists who led th 
resentation are now considered 

stuffy convention, while the works of the Norman Rockwell 
School are sneeringly referred to as exhibits of mere crafts- 
manship. In an international con game similar to the story 
of the emperor's new clothes, the art critics vie with one 
another in singing hosannas to the latest splattering, while 
despicable art speculators buy up the zaniest of this sickness 
in stone and canvas, thereby putting an artificial monetary 
value on it. This dupes the public into believing that there 
may be something in this modern art after all. 

Turning closer to home, one can watch the somewhat 
pitiable undergraduate's search for self. Having supplied 
himself with the uniform ivy-league chinos, paisley shirt 
with button-down collar, and collegiate raincoat, the under- 
grad finds he is still not individualistic enough. In addition 
he must affect the smoking of a pipe. (Nostrum: The smok- 
ing of a pipe reflects character.) There you see him in his 
individualistic uniform, the stem of a shiny new pipe 
clenched unfamiliarly in his teeth, with wreathes of smoke 
and nauseous effluvia fouling his path. 

Of course there are those who manage to 
be truly different. All it requires is that you 
do something so utterly pointless, ridiculous, 
or stupid that, even the fad-foolish American 
public won't follow your example. There 
have been notable failures even in this line, 
however, as bear witness goldfish swallow- 
ing, flagpole sitting, Bermuda shorts, and 
telephone booth cramming. 

What, then, is individualism? It is not 
the proclivity to affect "individualistic" fads. 
It demands that you be yourself and that 
your life reflect your convictions. To arrive 
at these convictions requires quiet intros- 
pective thinking, and not just the vegetative 
absorption of the ideas of others. A firm 
faith in your own convictions is the matrix 
of character. Individualism is only a mani- 
festation of character.

The Eyes 
Of Mortar Board 



Mortar Board has taken this opportunity to disseminate 
its views and opinions to the University campus. We sin- 
<vnly hope, via this column, to reach the student body and 
aid in the development and cultivation of a finer type of col- 
lege student. We desire to spotlight different aspects of our 
campus, thus letting ho known the vast University world of 
which we are each an integral part. 

Today wo should like to explore the world of the Extra- 
curricular Activities. We speak primarily to the Freshmen, 
who most probably are quite bewildered by the vast array 
of activities appealing for their membership. There are 
groups, as the Handbook will illustrate, available for all In- 
terests, be they literary, musical, technical, cultural, etc. The 
Revelers will be holding their annual Activities Night dur- 
ing the month of November. At this time members of the 
various campus organizations will explain the function and 
importance of their respective groups. 

Extra-curricular la a most important aspect of your Uni- 
versity life. Wo urge you to explore the workings of organ- 
izations appealing to your interests and further urge you to 
join. By joining, we do not moan paying dues, becoming a 
part of a mailing list, merely attending meetings. Much is 
expected of you when you become a member of an organiza- 
tion. To benefit yourself, the group, and the University, you 



must delve into its workings, work on its functions, become 
an integral part of the organization. By giving of yourself, 
you will be richly rewarded. The knowledge of seeing the 
products of your work realized and appreciated gives a sense 
of worth and dignity unattained elsewhere. Your friendships 
will broaden and pass hometown and dorm lines. Acquaint- 
ances with those who share your interests will stimulate 
and develop those interests to a finer degree. You will be 
known as a useful organization member and your opinions 
will bo recognized as such. Your life after Graduation will 
be much influenced by your extra-curricular work now. The 
potential of leadership, which each of us possesses will be 
brought to fruition by these experiences. 

A word of caution is in order. The scholastic aspect of 
college should and must occupy the major portion of your 
time. Your studios must be completed before delving into 
the vast world of the extra-curricular. To spread your time 
too thinly over both aspects benefits neither yourself or your 
selected organization, Pace yourself— begin with one ac- 
tivity and judge how much time you can safely give to it 
without hurting your grades. If you have judged carefully 
and maturely, extra-curricular activities will open a reward- 
ing, valuable experience to you that will continue far beyond 
your college years. 

Mortar Board cordially invites any questions or comments 
you may have relating to the topic of our column discussion. 
All questions sent to Mortar Board in care of the Collegian 
will be promptly answered.

We Want Books 

To the Editor: 

The Massachusetts Review, the newly organized 
magazine, which makes its first appearance in No 
vember, is in search of books. Text books, now and 
old, literature of all kinds— in other words, bonk 
are wanted. 

The Review is conducting its book drive in ord< r 
to help finance publication. All books that are col 
lected will be sold, and the profits will go to the 

Review. 

The book drive will be organized and run by 
student committee. This committee will approach 
faculty members individually about donating to the 
Book Drive. If any faculty member wishes to 
tribute before the formal opening of the drive, hi 
may do so by bringing the books to the German 
Dept. Office in Machmer. 

The Massachusetts Review is one of the f. u 
quality magazines to be started recently. With a 
first issue that includes contributors like Professors 
Gagnon, Barron, Tucker, and Koehler of UM ai 
Leo Marx of Amherst, Edward Katzenbach, Jr., and 
Robert Frost, among others, there should bo little 
doubt that the Review will be a success. But. it needs 
support — so remember, we want booksl 

Sincerely, 
The Book Drive Committee 



Let 's Pay 
For What We Get 

To the Editor; 

Would you pay for a meal that you didn't eat, if 
you were dining at a restaurant? And would you 
then go to a restaurant across the street, pay for 
and eat another meal? Ridiculous, isn't it? Yet, if 
you are a Common's meal ticket holder, you are 
probably forced to do just that several times a week! 

Have you evef counted the number of time:', you 
grab a bite to eat in the Hatch before an eight o'- 
clock class or between eleven and one o'clock claSSC 
beea ue e there isn't enough time to eat at the Com- 
mons? How often do you eat dinner in the Hatch 
rather than spend upwards of an hour waiting in 
one of the interminable (Commons' lines? 

Can't something be done? Yen! Why not ado|'' 
a system of refunds, based on the percentage of 
meals paid for but not eaten each semester? Since 
tickets are checked at each meal, the only additional 
task would be to transfer the numbers to a semester 
check sheet, a simple process. 

The administration may argue that a refund 
system would induce students to skip meals in or- 
der to receive more money at the end of the sonx 
ter. In answer to that, I say that if a student isn't 
responsible enough to eat properly, with no coercion, 
be doesn't belong in college. However, since there 
are always people in every school who don't he 
long there, and since they must be considered, I 
suggest that the refund checks be sent to the stu- 
dents' parents (or to whoever has paid the bill). If 
that isn't foasihl. , perhaps an even better solution 
would bo to apply the refund to the following 
semester's bill, thus reducing the amount owed. 

Since the meal problem was created by lack of 
foresight on the part of the administration, it ii 
their responsibility to solve it, but we students can 
certainly help our cause by making our feelings 
known. 

Sincerely, 

Ann Darracq T»l 



The Campus Beat 

by JERRY GALLAGHER '63 

Jince westerns and beatnik type detective stories are the vogue 
in T.V. this year, it's about time somebody combined the two and made 
a sort of Gunsmoke and 77 Sunset Strip combo. 

The story centers around the Espresso Saloon in the town of 
Endsville. As the scene opens we see our heroes, Doormat Killon 
(fastest bongo player in the west) and his worthless companion 
Chookie: (fastest coward in the west) downing a few espresso beers 
in the saloon. 

Chookie: (dunking comb into beer) Man this beer is cool, crazy, way 
out! 

Killon: (playing bongos) Like shut up will ya. 

Chookie: (combing hair) If that don't beat all man, that wider losin' 
her ranch man. 
Enter Mousy 

Mousy: (dogishly) Hi Ho Daddy-o mind if I dig this gig? 
Killon: (playing bongos) Like shut up will ya. 

Chookie: (eating comb) You're a cool cat, mousy. Mr. Killon ain't 
gonna let it fly undone. 
Enter the Scrounge (ranch stealer) 

Scrounge: Kilfon I broomed in 'cause this is a half hour seg and by 
the time you dolo after me it'll be scratched. 

Killon: (drawing gun and shooting him between sunglasses) Like 
shut up will ya.

Filmstrips . . . 

(Continued from page 1) 

Foundation were driven around 
campus yesterday morning and 
afto*noon in their "Folkswagon", 
to pose for the group shots. The 
Board plans to take about 200 
colored slides, from which fifty 
will be chosen for the filmstrip. 
The final product will include 
these slims and thirty-three 
Slides of works of art. The audio 

portion will be transcribed on a 
twelve-inch long-playing record, 



by professional actors. The stu- 
dents are portrayed in neutral 
roles, and the commentary will be 
presented from an optimistic, and 
then a pessimistic viewpoint, and 
it will be left to the viewer to 
decide which viewpoint is true. 

The filmstrip will be distributed 
by the Methodist Church for dis- 
tribution to student groups on 
campuses throughout the United 
States. It is hoped that this film- 
strip will encourage student sup- 
port to the Methodist Student 



Co-ed Corner 

by GERDA BROOKS '62 and CAROL KIBITB '62 



Well, here we be once again 
with some more tidin's from ye 
ole North End of Campus — 

CRABTREE HOUSE 

Correction! Judy Rosenthal, '<U, 
is NOT n gaged to Warren Mon- 
roe, '60, ATO, Worcester Teeh, 
but Ruth Weizel, '61, IS. OK? 
My apologies to the girls — and 
to fiances. 

Following each of our two home 
football games, many Crabtree 
girls and their dates enjoyed an 
informal coffee hour in the dorm 
lounge. Due to the interest in 
this gathering, we plan to get to- 
gether over coffee again on 
Homecoming Weekend. 

Ideas for our float for the 
parade next Friday night are be- 
ginning to flow and the girls are 
anxious to dive into the work of 
constructing it. 

LEWIS HOUSE 

There have been many elections 
within the past week here at 
Lewis. Theo Coughlin '62 is our 
nominee for Hon. Col. Jean Alden 
'62 was elected social Chairman 
and Doris Hollis '62 WAA Re- 
presentative. 

Congratulations to Claire Hy- 
land '60 on her recent engagement 
to Donald Bamf.ml '">!) TKE. A 
December wedding is planned. 

Barbara Murphy '63, Carol 
Castagnetti '62, Ginger Anderson 
*(',:;, Mari Porter '62 are nominees 
for Homecoming Queen. 

Lewis House Rec room will be 
open Friday night from 8:00-11:- 
30 for dancing, card-playing and 
pop corn popping. The girls are 
invited to bring their dates. 



DWIGHT HOUSE 

Greetings! It's just great to 
jump on the bandwagon and join 
you in Co-ed Corner. We're all 
pretty proud of our brand new 
dorm and we're grateful to Dean 
Curtis for her choice in furnish- 
ing it. We feel lucky also to be 
under the capable direction of 
our wonderful housemother Mrs. 
Winefred Field and her staff of 
counselors, Kana Lilly, Mimi 
Rockwell, Sue Powell, Merle 
Horenstein, Carol Tucker, Maren 
Simonds and Dottie Ravgiala. 

Our officers for the following 
year are as follows: Treasurer, 
Jane Grant; Socal Chairman, 
Joan Knowles; Representative to 
the Interdorm Council, Priscilla 
Phelan and Dwight's entry to the 
Military Ball Queen contest is 
Kana Lilly. 




Many congratulations are in 
order for Alice Burt, Dotty Hub- 
bard, Pat Jenkins, Jane Mac- 
Donald, Judy Selent and Judy 
Smith who celebrated birthdays 
this past week. 

Now that the walls are covered 
with pictures and the doors with 
signs, Dwight turns towards the 
opening of its official social 
career as all preparations turn 
toward the big Homecoming day 
float. We're a baby but watch us 
growl soOO — till next week, so 
long!

How long will it be before 
there is MO quietness anywhere, 
no escape from the rumble and 
the crash, the clank and the 
screech which seem to be Die in- 
evitable accompaniment of tech- 
nology? Whatever mom does or

avoidable by-product. Perhaps he 
can, as he now tends to believe, 
do anything. But he cannot do 
it quietly.

What Makes Ibp Corn Ibp? 

Popping corn contains water. When the water gets hot enough, 
the kernel explodes. Result: popcorn. 

We're not passing this information along as a public 
service. Actually we're up to the same old game. 

You see, popcorn makes most people thirsty. 
Fortunately, when most people get thirsty 
they hanker for the good taste of Coca-Cola. 

Wouldn't you like some popcorn right now? 
C'mon now, wouldn't you?

INTERFRATERNITY DEBATES 
TABLED 

The suggestion by Victor 
Gagnon, President of the Debat- 
ing Society, that the IFC incor- 
porate intramural debates into 
the point system, was tabled un- 
til semester. 

The members felt that the 
houses had too much activity 
planned already and that a proj- 
ect of this nature would require 
more study and consideration be- 
fore a definite decision could be 
reached. 

IFC THEME PARTIES SET 

November 7 or 14 were the 
possible dates set for the 
Fraternity theme parties. This is 
a contest in which the fraternities 
try to outdo one another in dec- 
orating their houses. Each house 
is judged and the top three houses 
are awarded points. 

SING, SKITS READY 
FOR OCT. 31, NOV. 1 

The weekend of October 31 has 
been definitely set for the frater- 
nity sings and skit??, Dave Burke 
(KS) is in charge of the Sing 
and Perry Harris (PSK) is plan- 
ning the Skits. Any questions 
should be directed toward these 
two men. 

In closing the meeting, William 
Starkweather pointed out that 
men need a 1.7 cumulative aver- 
age to pledge a fraternity. Re-

he wasn't sure if everyone knew

1.7.

Back again with more news 
but first an important announce- 
ment— Pan-Hel will be sponsoring 
the 'Mum Sale at Homecoming 
again this year. They will be 
sold at the gates before the 
game. Look for the announce- 
ments around campus next 

week! 

OHIO 

All the Chi O's are bustling 
around now, trying to get set- 
tled in our sharp looking house 
on Lincoln Avenue. 

The seniors moved in over the 
week-end of October second and 
have been mighty active since, 
receiving their house duties, and 
soaking in all that atmosphere 
that goes with being a senior 
"living in." 

Last Monday the sisters all 
took pot luck and had dinner at 
the house for the first time this 
year. Though there was a 
scarcity of chairs, there was 
plenty of food and conversation. 

Amongst all this excitement, 
two sisters, Les Payzant and Al- 
sie Edgerton were pinned. 

With Homecoming fast ap- 
proaching, we are gathering 
spirit and energy for our float 
further sparked by Nancy Boyd 
and Carrie Sherriff who are two 
of the finalists for the title of 
Homecoming Queen. Congratula- 
tions, kids! 

GAMMA CHI ALPHA 

The weekend of Oct. 3 was a 
red-letter one for GCA, as it 
was the date of their first 
pledge formal, which was held 
at Wiggins in Northampton. 
Tony Ravosa and his band pro- 
vided the music and from reports 
heard via the grapevine, the 
evening was a huge success. 
Some of the evening's events in- 



cluded a formal presentation of 
the twenty pledges from both 
the classes of '61 and '62 taken 
last spring and the presentation 
of paddles to the big sisters 
from the little sisters. All in all 
it was the best pledge formal 
GCA ever had. 

An area around the WPE 
building has been filled with the 
sounds of Gamma Chi's sing 
rehearsals lately. With Nov, 4 
approaching quickly, rehearsals 
have been long — but fun, too! 

Important — Because GCA has 
heard comments concerning dif- 
ficulty in reaching them due to 
the lack of a house, all those 
wishing to get in touch with the 
president, Jane Massimiano, may 
reach her at Hamlin. Elaine 
Olbrych, social chairman, may 
also be reached there. Any cor- 
respondence may be left in 
GCA's box in the RSO office. 
This box is checkH daily and 
anything left in it will receive 
prompt attention. 

On October 25, Sunday, the 
spring pledge class will be 
initiated. It's been a long wait, 
kids, but you'll be sisters in a 
few weeks! 

The first few weeks of school 
is the time when everyone finds 
out the summer's happenings. 
GCA has its share, toof

PI PHI 

With all tin- MW additions ami 
renovations completed, the Pi 
Phi's are now living happily in 
their "new house". The ni< 
addition however, is our MW 
housemother, Mrs. Arthur 
Mahoney. Mrs. Mahoney is from 
Squantum and is the mother of 
Art Mahoney, Theta Chi. A tea 
was held last Sunday in her 
honor, formally introducing her 
to the campus. 

A very nice surprise for one of 
our sophomores, Bev Rodiman, 
was being tapped a Scroll at the 
beginning of this year. 

Congratulations and best wishes 
are in order for Mai Kolayzk and 
Jim Shields, TKE, on their recent 
pinning. 

Best wishes are also extended 
to Ellie and Ken Peterson and 
Nancy and Joe Baldwin, on their 
recent summer marriages. The 
girls are the former Ellic Gal 
braith and Nancy Jones. Ellie, Pi 
Phi's representative for last 
year's Best Dressed Girl on Cam- 
pus, was one of the ten national 
winners in Glamour magazine's 
fall college issue. 

For those of you who have been 
frantically searching your phone 
books, Pi Phi's new numbers are: 
Al 3-3806, Al 3-3565.

new recording secretary. 

SDT is sorry to see Betsy Mc, 
Plaz, and Weaselle return to Chi 
O. We enjoyed having you. Please 
come again. 

SIGMA KAPPA 

Nineteen Allen Street has been 
the scene of bustling activity this 
week with the Sigmas vigorously 
engaged in Upper Class Rush. 
Wednesday night the theme party 
got under way once again with the 
"sailing" of the Sigma Kappa 
Showboat manned by a full crew. 

Plans are now in progress for a 
successful Homecoming and w<> 
all are proud of Ginger Anderson 
who was nominated one of the 
five finalists for Homecoming 
Queen. 

In answer to those who have 
inquired about the sweet strains 
of music floating out of the chap- 
ter house, they are a product of 
the Sigmas working once again 
under the direction of Ellie San- 
tos who successfully led us into 
first place in the Inter-Sorority

TBI MASSACHUSETTS COLLEGIA Y FRIDAY, OCTOBER 9, 1959 



REDMEN HUNT HUSKIES IN UCONN 



by VIN BASILI 62 

Sports Editor 

The Massachusetts Redmen 
Will invade Storrs, Connecticut 
tomorrow to face the UConn 
Huskies in what may he the 
mn>t crucial fame of this year's 
Yankee Conference series. 

The Redmen, despite two losses 
at the hands of Harvard and 
Delaware, will be entering to- 
morrow's game with a YanCon 
win under their belt. 

The Huskies have not won a 
game this season. They lost to 
Yale and Rutgers. 

UMass YanCon Dark Horse 
If UMass should win tomor- 
row's gridiron conflict, only New 
Hampshire is expected to be a 
dangerous contender for the Yan- 
Con title. UMass, tabbed as a 
"dark horse" candidate at the 
beginning of the season, has 
been considered a possible 
usurper to the Huskies' hold of 




1954, when they eked out a 20-l.i 
victory. Connecticut won last 
year's battle with a 28-14 score. 

Burgess At Tackle 

With end John Biirge** being 
switched to the tackle slot, it is 
expected that Harry Williford 
will again take on the starting 
Hunt end assignment. 

The Redmen will be entering 
tomorrow's game minus two 
standout halfbacks. 

Tom Delnickas, regarded by 
.S><>r/« lliueirmted as one of the 
best halfbacks in the Yankee 
Conference, will have to sit out 
tomorrow's game because of a 
dislocated elbow which he suf- 
fered in last week's game with 
Delaware. Delnickas is expected 
to be sidelined for two more 
weeks. 

Roland Out Also 

Bob Roland will also be sitting 
on the sidelines tomorrow. Bob 
was reported suffering from in- 
ternal bleeding at the beginning 
of the week. The bleeding has 
stopped, but Roland it is re- 
ported, will also be out for "a 
few weeks. 



The probable starting lineup 



is: 



RE 



JOHN BURGESS 



the Bean Pot title, since they 
beat Maine three weeks ago, 

Saturday's game will be the 
thirtieth meeting of these two 
clubs. Massachusetts has an edge 
in the series, 15 wins, against 14 
loses. However, the Redmen have 
not defeated the Huskies since

SPOTLIGHTING 
THE REDMEN 



by PETE TEMPLE '60 

1954 started out as a big year 
for the UMass Redmen. After 
opening with a win over AIC fol- 
lowed by the now famous Har- 
vard upset, the O'Rourkemen 
were ready to meet UConn on 
Alumni Field for the Homecoming 
Game. 

Despite their fine showings in 
their two previous games, the 
Redmen were still rated as under- 
dogs. They were facing ten start- 
ing lettermen from a Huskies 
squad which had drubbed them, 
41-0, the year before. The UMass 
team also seemed to have a jinx 
working against them. Never, un- 
der the name of the University, 
had they beaten the men from 
Storrs, and one had to go back 
as far as 1941 to find the Am- 
herst school, then Mass State, in 
the win column. 

But it took the spirited Red- 
men only 5 minutes to show the 
odds-makers how wrong they 
could be. After taking the open- 
ing kick-off, UMass marched 55 
yards through the Huskies' line 
in ten plays for a score. Soph 
halfback, Dick Wright, capped the 
march by driving 6 yards off 
tackle for the T.D., Red Porter 
booted the point after, and the 
Redmen led 7-0. 

The uiidfttlug Redmen pushed 
their bitter rivals all over the 
field for the remainder of the 
first half, but the UConn defense 
stiffened inside their own 10 yard 



line, and the O'Rourkemen were 
thwarted in their attempts to uj» 
the score. 

Early in the third period the 
Redmen handed UConn their first 
touchdown when a bad pass from 
center on a punt formation gave 
the Huskies the ball on the U- 
Mass 10 yard line. One play later 
found the Redmen hanging onto 
a precarious 7-0 lead. 

Then Red Johnson took charge 
for UMass. It was early in the 
fourth quarter and the Redmen 
still hung to their 1 point lead. 
With the ball on the UConn 43, 
Johnson spun over guard, broke 
into the open, and raced to pay- 
dirt. 

Minutes later, after the UConn 
offense nad been stifled, the 
Redmen again took over on the 
Huskie 43. Again Johnson was 
called upon, and again the speedy 
halfback broke through the mid- 
dle of the line and romped the 
distance to the goal line. 

With little time remaining, the 
Redmen now enjoyed a 20-6 lead. 
UConn scored again against the 
scrub team, but the outcome of 
the game had been decided earlier 
— after Red Johnson's two daz- 
zling touchdown runs. 

October 9, 1954 was the first 
last, and only time UMass, as the 
University, has managed a vie 
tory over their arrhrivals from 
UConn, Tomorrow we take them 
<m airam after four years of dis. 
appointing losses. Maybe we can 
make it win number two. 



'The Boss ' 




Ralph Maloney, 6 foot 3 inch. 
198 pound senior from Lexing- 
ton, will lead the Redmen to 
Storrs tomorrow. Maloney, the 
captain, is an end with good 
speed, who is also a better than 
average pass receiver. 



Frosh Plav At B.U. 

• 

The UMass freshman gridsters 
will launch the frosh football sea- 
son when they meet the Boston 
University squad in hostile ter- 
ritory, Saturday, at 2:00 p.m. 

The frosh have been working 
out for the past three weeks, and 
should be in good shape for the 
game. 

Boston University will be a 
formidable opponent. They have a 
34-man squad, and great things 
are expected of them. 

Coach Dick MacPherson has 
had a rough time in choosing the 
starting UMass squad, for the 
competition has been very high 
among the candidates for the 
team. The probable starters are: 

!« Frank r.„M#n r» Paul Ma)*«kl, It 
Steve Forman. rt Prank Santarpio, Ik

Superior Williams Team 
Swamps UMass Booters 



by BILL LENNON '61 

Wednesday afternoon on the 
women's athletic field the Redmen 
booters lost to a superior Wil- 
liams team, 11-0. Played in a con- 
stant drizzle, the game was hard 
fought throughout the scoreless 
first half. 

In the second half, however, 
UMass, playing without the serv- 
ices of many key men, began to 
tire badly. During this last half 
the strong Williams team pushed 
across all eleven goals. 

In the first half the Purple 
constantly drove toward the goal 
and were consistently repelled. 
Goaltender, Charles Correia, led 
the stalwart defense as he made 
numerous saves of potential goals. 

Soon after the third quarter be- 
gan, however, the weary Redmen 
could not contain the Berkshire 
County boys. Adding to the woes 
of the Redmen defense was tKe 
fact that the slippery ball was 
very difficult to control and 
especially difficult for the goalie 
to handle. 

Finally John O'Donnell broke 
the scoring ice. Before the third 



period had ended Field, Ruther- 
ford, and Doerge had split the 
nets and Ben Henszey booted in 
two in the final minute. 

The relentless attack continued 
in the final quarter as O'Donnell, 
Buck, and Cupic scored. Tom 
Thomas booted hoie - the final 
two tallies, the last one .coming 
with 20 seconds remaining in the 
game. 

Saturday the Redmen face U- 
Conn at Storrs and will attempt 
to even their season record at 
2-2. Four more road games fol- 
low before the Redmen play their 
final game here against Tufts on 
Nov. 6th.

SPORTALK 



by HAL DUTTON '60 



Tomorrow the Redmen swing 
back into Yankee Conference play 
at Memorial Stadium. At this 
point we are tied for the lead in 
the conference with New Hamp- 
shire, with identical 1-0 records. 

The Huskies are out to retain 
the Beanpot for another year. 
They won the title outright in 
1958 and 1956 and shared the 
crown with Rhode Island in 1957. 

The Rams were the last team 
to beat the Huskies in conference 
play. They turned the trick back 
in 1955, 25-0. Since then the 
Storrsmen have won ten and 
played two scoreless ties against 
Beanpot foes. 

Once again a strong running 
attack is the key to the Huskies 
offense. Halfbacks Bob Horn and 
Bill Minnerly should give the 
Redmen'* defensive forward wall 
plenty of work. 

Last year quarterback Harry 
Drivas was one of .the East's 
leading passers with 47 comple- 
tions in 109 attempts. In three 
outings this year his aerial work 
has not been up to par. 

Our hosts lead the nation's 
mnall colleges in punting with an 
a\oragc of better than 46 yards 
per kick. 



Five of their sixteen lettermen 
hail from the Bay State. 

Saturday Sidelights 
Action this weekend will have 
a lot of bearing on the Lambert 
Trophy race. Four of the East's 
perennial leaders meet in the 
two big games on the seaboard. 
Navy and Syracuse meet at Nor- 
folk, while Army entertains Penn 
State at West Point. 

The Orange of Syracuse have 
looked sloppy in wins over Kan- 
sas and Maryland. However, Ben 
Schwartzwalder haa three teams 
which he uses interchangeably. 
They could be rough before the 
year is over. The status of Navy's 
star halfback Joe Bellino is in 
doubt for tomorrow's clash. That 
could spell the difference for the 
Middies. 

Up West Point way Army is 
without All American halfback 
Bob Anderson. Injured early in 
the Illinois game a week ago, the 
Cadets were tagged with a 20- 
14 defeat. The Nittany Lions 
Richie Lucas is third in the na- 
tion in total offense. Coach Rip 
Engle calls him, "The best all 
around back in the country," The 
Black Knights may be in for an- 
other rough afternoon.

office is the arranging of rooms 
to be used for the different activi- 
ties. 

Mr. Harold Durgin has stressed 
the fact that the operations of 
his staff "are spread all over the 
University and are not merely 
confined to the Student Union." 
The rooms used for the various 
activities on campus range from 
Bowker Auditorium to Stock- 
bridge to Skinner Hall, as well as 
those in the Union. 

Because it costs the University 
over $35,000 a year to run the 
Student Union, most of the money 
collected from the rent of the 
rooms is used for maintenance 
fees. Outside groups are charged 
a flat rate to use the rooms. 
Though students pay nothing 
when using the building, the mon- 
ey collected from their activities 
enables the University to pay for 
the maintenance of the building. 

The Calendar Board is con- 
sulted in cases of conflicting re- 
quests for a room. This board 
meets once a month to review the 
scheduling of University affairs 
and to decide upon any issues that 
have arisen. 

Mr. Durgin said, "Many of the 
problems encountered could be 
cleared up if the students would 
announce any cancellation of their 
activities." When asked if this 
were a very common occurrence, 
he replied, "No, on the whole I 
find the students very helpful. 
They show unusual maturity in 
realizing the problems that this 
office faces in attempting to ar- 
range their activities."

Mar cum Discusses 
African Problems 



"An Analysis of Recent De- 
velopments in French Africa" 
was the theme of a lecture given 
by John A. Marcum at the Gov- 
ernment Department Colloquium 
yesterday. 

Addressing an audience in Bow- 
ditch Lodge, Prof. Marcum 
stressed the desire of the Africans 
to find a "place in the sun". This 
is in direct conflict with the 
French, who want the Africans to 
think of themselves as French- 
men. 

Prof. Marcum discussed at 
lejigth the political parties in 
Africa. He discovered that almost 
al! African parties demand im- 
mediate independence and unifica- 
tion. 

Discussing the future of the 
African continent, Mr. Marcum 
predicted that the present boun- 
daries between areas colonized by 
the European powers would be- 
come the boundaries of future

40 Floats Join In Homecoming Parade 



by DICK BRESCIA M '60 

Homecoming Weekend will get 
off to a spectacular start Friday 
night when almost 40 floats will 
parade from the campus through 
Amherst and back to the campus. 

A rally, highlighted by a huge 
bonfire, cheerleaders, the Home- 
eomtng Queen and her court, and 
a speaking program will top off 
the evening. 

The float parade will start in 



front of the Cage at 6:30 and 
will work back along the road in 
front of the Student Un'on. 

Markers will designate where 
each dorm, frat and sorority will 
be positioned. The parade will 
travel down Lincoln Ave., turn 
left at Amity St. and then turn 
up North Pleasant and proceed 
back to campus. 

The judges will be stationed 
around the parade route. The 



awards will be announced at the 
rally following the parade, and 
will be based on overall effect, 
composition, originality, ability to 
inspire the team, and participa- 
tion in the meaning of the float. 
The floats will be divided into 
four divisions for judging, frater- 
nities, sororities, girls' dorms and 
boys' dorms. The first three win- 
ners in each group will be an*

The State 



And The University 

The relation of a State University to the 
public authority, namely the State, which 
has assumed the responsibility for that in- 
stitution's growth and future, ought indeed 
to be a topic of interest to the student who 
would take advantage of the services offered 
him by and thru the State University. 

Especially true is this in the Common- 
wealth of Massachusetts; for the relationship 
between our University and the State au- 
thority in Boston is in many ways unique. 
For example, despite the passage of the so- 
called "Freedom Bill" some years ago, the 
University of Massachusetts is still subject 
to the controls of the central State authori- 
ties in matters in which most other State 
Universities are sovereign. (The University 
of Massachusetts, for example, must turn 
over to the general fund of the Common- 
wealth all monies collected in tuition, fees 
and other charges, a requirement totally 
unique to Massachusetts.) 

For the student interested in the relation 
between the University of Massachusetts and 
the State authority in Boston, Dr. Jean Paul 
Mather, our President, will speak on this 
topic this Thursday at 7:30 p.m. We believe 
attendance at this event to be mandatory to 
the interested student; for who should be 
more familiar with the problem of the rela- 
tion of a State University to the central au- 
thority of the State itself, than the Presi- 
dent of a State University? Indeed, President 
Mather, a man who has during his years as 
President been through very crucial skirm- 
ishes with Boston, is certainly well qualified 
to speak on this issue, not only to us, but 
perhaps to the whole nation. J. A.M. 

An Example of Courage 

An example of courage the like of which 
is seldom seen was displayed on television 
Friday night. The New England Telephone 
and Telegraph Company, sponsor of the 
"Bell Telephone Hour", dared to produce a 
"musical treat" which was guaranteed to 
contain something of interest to almost any 
rfower. By so doing the producers were as- 
sured of many people's uninterest in some of 

the acts. 

The program included Sally Ann Howes, 
S<*r of "My Fair Lady"; Zino Franeesentti, 
rrnownrd rinlinist; the Kingston Trio; Red 
Nichols and his Five Pennies, with Connie 
Boswell; and the Ballet Russe de Monte 
Carlo, presenting the "Caitc Parisicnne" 

To present such quality entertainment at 
the same time a well-known Western was be- 
ing telecast was certainly an act of courage. 
In an age governed by public opinion polls 
— which polls in this case would decree that 
the American public will accept only West- 
ems or detective stories, the attempt to pre- 
serve and present the entertainment of the 
nature produced on the "Bell Telephone 
Hour" should certainly be applauded.

Dining Facilities: Inadequate 

by JOE PALLAZOLA '62 

Voice From the Past 



President Ralph A. Van Meter, in his Report of the President 
for the school year 1949-1950, wrote the following statements 
under the heading "Building Needs": 

"Our dining problem is acute, and I am convinced, after 
long study, that it cannot be solved without an additional din- 
ing hall ... other facilities are wholly inadequate [to handle 
the surplus]. 

"The problem is not merely one of finding enough to eat 
to stay alive. Boys and girls of college age should have regular, 
well-balanced meals, prepared under the direction of a com- 
petent dietitian and served in such a way as to encourage a 
civilized and intelligent approach to dining. These students are 
forming life-long habits. Of immediate concern — under present 
conditions, they can and do impair their effectiveness as stu- 
dents. Many cannot be made to realize that living on sand- 
wiches or desserts eaten hastily at all hours is a poor prepara- 
tion for work of any kind. Because the need for another dining 
hall is so pressing, we have placed it at the head of the list of 
building needs." 



History Repeats Itself 



"A loaf of bread, a jug of wine ..." and a place to eatl Oh for 
a place to eat! What about the Hatch, you say? Or the Commons, 
or maybe even Butterfield or Grepnough? These latter two are 
"saturated," says Mr. Jack Martin, Manager of the Commons. As 
for the former two, they are so crowded during the rush hours, that 
one wonders if it is really worth the time and trouble to eat there 
at all. 

This very day, many students rushed to the dining halls to stand 
in line fifteen to twenty minutes, bolt their food down in ten minutes, 
and then run off to their next class with barely enough time to get 
there. Or they sized up the difficulty beforehand, and decided it just 
wasn't worth the effort, especially those who eat on the hill. Many 
more grabbed a quick sandwich and Coke down the Hatch to mo- 
mentarily ease their appetites. These can hardly be considered 
beneficial practices, and, if continued too long, they constitute a de- 
finite threat to the students' health and welfare. 

Dining facilities, it seems, come last in the building program; 
classrooms, labs and dormitories come first. In fact, dormitories seem 
to be springing up like mushrooms, as a cursory glance about the 
campus will readily reveal. We've' got nothing against the new dorms, 
you understand; we need the rc^m badly. What we'd like to know is: 
where on this green campus are the people housed in all these new 
dorms to eat? Certainly plenty of thought has been given to this 
problem, but there is little evidence of action to be found anywhere on 
campus. 

Mr. Martin also supplied the following figures concerning the 
number of students using the dining facilities during the weekday 
meals: the Dining Commons, with a present seating capacity of 760 
(200 to be added soon), is feeding approximately 1975 students; 
Greenough, with a capacity of 300, is accommodating 550 students per 
meal; and Butterfield, with 200 seats, feeds 425 students. Out of ap- 
proximately 6150 students, then, the dining facilities feed about 2950. 
The remainder eat in fraternities, sororities, the Hatch, and in diners 
downtown. 

Our present dining halls barely manage to accommodate their load 
now. Butterfield and Greenough, in fact, were so filled up that they 
had to spill over into the Commons, which so far has managed to 
absorb the extra students successfully. But it can't take too much 
more and still give any semblance of reasonable service. 

One bright ray of hope is already shining on the horizon, how- 
ever. Mr. John Gillespie, the University Secretary, said that the budget 
for the present fiscal year, as submitted to the state legislature, pro- 
vides money for the building of a badly-needed extension on our pres- 
ent Dining Commons. This was given high priority because it affects 
the entire expansion program. 

Mr. Hugill, the architect working on University expansion 
planning, said that plans for the extension have not yet been ap- 
proved, and consequently the building contract has not yet been 
awarded. However, it is expected that the Commons extension will 
be ready for use by February, 1!>61. By then the University will have 
an estimated 7000 students. That's an increase of about 850 over our 
present enrollment (the extension will seat 600). This is at least a 
step in the right direction, even though it will fall short of fully alle- 
viating our crowding problem in the dining halls. 

According to the MASTER PLAN, the next dining facilities to be 
built, after the extension to the Commons, will be the new southerly 
Commons, opposite Fernald Hall. This, the PLAN blithely states, will 
be needed when "the enrollment approaches 10,000." Mr. Martin says 
it will certainly be started much sooner than* that; it ia badly needed 
even now. 

This problem is all old stuff to the University. In the pnst, as 
now, stop-gap measures were adopted when conditions became too 
pressing. The Commons extension strikes us as such a measure. It 
will help, certainly, but it won't eliminate the problem. Is this to be 
the pattern for the future, then ? Must we always have to be pushed 
to the limit before something is done to ease the situation? Must fa- 
cilities invariably lag behind the need just because that has always 
been the case in the past? Why dont they get started on that new 
Commons this year, BBPORE our backs are to the wall again? What a 
morale booster adequate dining facilities would be! 



Editor's Mailbox 

a matter of common sense 

In the October 9 issue of the Collegian, we com- 
muters were stringently criticized for the low per- 
centage of votes that were cast in Wednesday's 
election. It was even suggested that the number of 
our representatives be diminished. I would like to 
point out several important reasons why the author 
of that statement did not think, in my opinion, be- 
fore he spoke. 

The commuters, the editorial admits, were en- 
titled to the four senators by the method agreed 
upon by the Student Senate. But, according to the 
author, these four senators were only representing 
forty people, or so he would have us believe. Granted, 
those who did not vote did not live up to their duty, 
but they are still entitled to representation under 
our constitution. These senators aren't just repre- 
senting forty people, but the entire body of com- 
muters. Those who didn't vote just sacrificed their 
right to choose these people, they did not sacrifice 
their right to these representatives. 

It should also be pointed out why some of the 
commuters didn't vote: 

There ware four seats to be filled, but only four 
candidates. Each candidate actually only needed 
one vote (his own would do) to be elected. The 
commuter, actually had a "Russian" ballot . . . 
everyone was going to be elected. The fact that 
there was no contest caused apathy on the part of 
the commuters. When I registered for my ballot, I 
almost handed it back when I discovered that my 
vote really meant nothing. The only reason that 
did vote, was because I had the ballot and figured 
that I might just as well fill it in. I checked off all 
four names. When I had finished, I had that won- 
derful (?) feeling of knowing that my vote had 
made the* difference (?)• 

How many of you that did vote knew the candi- 
date as more than "the fellow who knocked on my 
door and asked for my vote." Yet, you expect us to 
use a "Russian ballot" to elect people who many 
of us have never seen. 

You criticize us for not voting, I chastize most 
of you for voting for someone whose qualifications 
you didn't know. I reprimand you for voting for 
someone who knocked on your door; I rebuke you 
for giving your vote just because "he has a nice 
sounding name" or, bee-use "Joe told me he's a nice 
guy." At least you had a choice. Did you use it 
properly? If you didn't you should hang your head 
in shame for criticizing us who had no choice, when 
you so terribly abused your right by voting thus. 

I do not. condone the action or inaction of my 
fellow commuters, I think they should hang their 
heads also; but, I dislike the idea of anyone even 
suggesting that my constitutional right (of four 
senators) be jeopardized, especially whni he (or she) 
has not seen the true picture. 

One of the forty who did vote, 
Ravmond Leo Blain '63 



a resignation from futility 

I have submitted my resignation from the Stu- 
dent Senate. To you, my constituents, I give these 
reasons for my actions: 

After being in the Senate for over a year, T feel 
that I can put my time to better use in some organ- 
ization other than the Student Senate. The main rea- 
son for this is that in the end the Senate accom- 
plishes nothing that could not be replaced by a quali- 
fied person to allot funds and a simple suggestion 
box to air student grievances. 

The major function of the Senate is the allot- 
ment of the Student Activity Tax funds to the va- 
rious student organizations. But the Senate as a 
whole is uninformed; except in very rare cases, the 
individual has no way of knowing what is on the 
agenda until he is in the meeting and then It is too 
late to do any research on the matter; so he just 
accepts the word of others in making his final deci- 
sions. This leads to the conclusion that paid quali- 
fied help operating under South College could make 
more intelligent allocations of the student funds 

than the Senate. 

In many cases the senators are elected by very 
few people who do not know or care about the in- 
dividual's qualifications for the job. Then after the 
novelty of being a senator has worn off members be- 
gin to forget their duties as committeemen. When 
the committee chairmen try to have work done by 
the members, the excuses are readily forthcoming, 
so in the long run, if the job is to be done at all, 
the chairman Is the one to do it. 

To top this off, along aboiit the middle of the 
year meeting attendance starts to fall off. And when 
the all important meetings to allocate funds for the 
budgets of student organizations come around, the 
Senate President is hard pressed to just get a 
quorum of the members present. 

The end result is that the Student Senate be- 
comes a colony of drones, supported by relatively 
few workers. Rather than be associated any longer 
with this group, I have submitted my resignation.

The Campus Beat 



by ERNIE MANDER '60 



Supposing I should get caught 

in there? 

What do you think this is, some 
run of the mill plan? I've worked 
this out down to the last detail. 
You'll just be one of the flock. 
Incidentally, a whole flock of Phi 
Eta Sigma's will be meeting at 
the coming regional conference. 
Plans will be formulated at the 
meeting tonight in the Norfolk 
Room of the S.U. 

Then why don't you put on the 
sheepskin and I'll wait out here 
for you. 

Look, Clod, we agreed that 
you'd be the one to crawl in the 
pen. The ram will think you're 
new stock and come after you. 
Lead him out the gate and I'll 
grab him and throw him in the 
trunk. 

Why can't we use a fake ram 
for our float? 

What do you want, a winner or 
an also-ram? We're up against 
stiff competition, Wheeler, Arnold 
and all the rest. Even the Com- 
muters are getting together for 
the homecoming parade. Anyone 
interested in helping out check 
the bulletin board in the games 
area of the S.U. 

Before I do it, give me that 
phone number of that girl. 

Okay, Capital 4-9793. 

How do you make a capital 
four? 

Get going and "Don't go near 
the Water." If you don't know 
why, see it tomorrow night at 
the S.U. 

What if I should run into gome 
wild animal in there? 

In a sheep pen? Don't be 
ridiculous. 

Well. I know a missionary who 
was lost in Africa and he came 
across a lion. He was so terrified 
he knelt down to pray for deliv- 
erence. Then he looked over and 
saw the lion down on his knees 
praying too. 

I would have thanked the lion

West, realizing that the con- 
tract must be played in a suit, 
decided that the major suit of- 
fered the best scoring possibili- 
ties. The 4NT convention is the 
Blackwood Convention and shows 
that a 7 bid is unlikely, missing 
two kings. 

The opening lead by South is 
the SK and Declarer takes his 
SA. Declarer then led his HJ and 
South covers with the HQ and 
declarer wins with the HA. He 
then leads the H3 from dummy 
to the HK and the H10 falls mak- 
ing his H8 good to draw out 
South's seven. The contract is 
then cold as declarer leads his C10 
to dummy's CJ and runs 5 clubs 
tricks discarding his spades and 
diamonds. The contract thus 
makes seven. 

This contract can be set by an 
opening diamond lead which 
creates transportation problems 
and can set the bid. This hand can 
only be played in slam at a heart 
contract since NT and clubs 
create too many transportation 
problems and can easily be set.

THE MASSACHl SETTS COLLEGIAN. WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 14, 1159 



FUMBLES PROVE TO BE FATAL; HUSKIES WIN 26-0 



Seven fumbles cost the Redmen 
an important victory over UConn 
last Saturday. UMass played good 
ball with both McCormick and 
Conway clicking at the quarter- 
back slot. 

The game started when the 
Redmen kicked off to UConn. 
The Huskies could not move the 
ball, and punted. 



The Redmen drive was stopped, 
however, on the Huskies' 15-yard 
line. 

This was the most serious 
I "Mass threat, for during the sec- 
ond half, seven fumbles prevented 
any Redmen scoring. 

Excluding the fumbling, how- 
p\*er, the Redmen played great 
ball. 



Close Enough Buster 




The Redmen played a good defensive game against the Huskies. 
Here, Roger Benvenuti is set to tackle UConn's left halfback, Bill 
Minnerly, while Jerry Cullen is holding off O'Connell. 



Precisionettes 

by JUDY JARVELA *62 

The Precision, ttes made their 
second appearance of this year, 
la>t Saturday, at the UMass- 
L'Oonn game. 

They made an impressive en- 
trance as they marched on to the 
field and were greeted by a thun- 
derous applause from both 
schools. The WTIC radio an- 
nouncer said: "These Precision- 
ettes are really something to be- 
hold." 

At half-time, after the field had 
cleared of football players, the 
Precisionettes and the Redmen 
Band marched in from opposite 
ends of the field. 

First, they saluted U. of Mass; 
then U. of Connecticut. They took 
their positions on the 40 yd. line 
and went through their various 
formations. 

Then, facing Connecticut, they 
performed, for the second time 
this year, their new innovation, 
the 8-l-o-w motion salute. 

After the band played Mr. 
Football, they did a staggered 
form of the slow motion salute. 
The timing was perfect, and their 
hand movements were graceful. 

Then, they faced the U.Mass. 
spectators and, with the band, 
they marched off the field, end- 
ing an enjoyable halftime per- 
formance. 



Frosh Lose To B.U. 



by BEN GORDON 62 

The UMass frosh gridmen tost 
their first game, 24-7, to an air- 
borne Boston University squad 
last Saturday at Boston. 

Although this seems to be quite 
a large margin, the score is de- 
ceiving. 

UMass looked like the- better 
team on the ground, completely 
stopping the B.U. ground game, 
but the B.U. passing offensive, 
which scored 320 yards, told the 
tale. 

At the end of the first half the 
score stood at 7-6. in favor of 
UMass, our tally coming on a 23 
yard run by halfback Pete 
Schindler. George Pleau kicked 
the extra point. 

B.U. Goes Ahead in 3rd 

In the third quarter B.U. took 
to the air and went ahead, 12-7. 
The UMass frosh then drove to 
the B.U. 3-yard line, but failed 
to carry the ball over for the T.D. 



B.U. scored again early in the 
fourth quarter. With seconds to 
go in the game, UMass fumbled 
on its own 1-yard line. B.U. took 
over and scored in the last play 
of the game. 

Coach Dick MacPherson was 
pleased with. his team's showing, 
and attributes the UMass inef- 
fectiveness against B.U.'s passing 
game to a lack of emphasis on 
pass defense coaching. 

Many players did outstanding 
work in Saturday's game. Half- 
back Pete Schindler, and ends 
Paul Majeski and Frank Golden 
ran very well. Centers Tim Nevils 
and Tom Kirby played well, and 
Matt Collins, the number 2 full- 
back, looked very good on defense. 

The team's next game will be 
at home against Brown, next 
Friday at 2:00 p.m. Brown lost 
last Friday to a powerful Dart- 
mouth team, 20-6, and should be 
a challenge to UMass. 



We 're Coming Bill 



UMass began to move the ball 
well with quarterback Jack Con- 
way connecting with Benvenuti 
for a beautiful 43-yard pass play 
to the Huskies' 20-yard line. 

A series of cleverly executed 
bootleg plays by Conway moved 
the ball deeper into Husky ter- 
ritory despite a 15-yard penalty. 



John McCormick, in 22 pass at- 
tempts, completed 11 for a total 
of 102 yards. Jack Conway also 
played well, with 60 yards for 
three out of four passes. 

Although the boys played their 
hearts out, they couldn't overcome I 
the fumbling, and that cost them ■ 
the game.

Facts 'n Figures 

by DICK BRESCIANI '60 

For the first time this season the Redmen will be favorites when 
they take the field Saturday to entertain the always-pesky Rhode Is- 
land Rams in the Homecoming Weekend feature attraction. 

This should be the day that UMass will get back on the winning 
trail. It should be ... but that doesn't mean it will. Games are won 
on the field and not in a newspaper column. 

On paper the Redmen are as good as any team in the Conference, 
including UConn. But there seems to be something missing. Maybe 
it's the same type of apathy that pervades the entire campus. 

It can't he said that the players don't want to win. Every athlete 
wants to win. Rut some want to win more than others, and give just 
that little extra that often means the difference between winning and 
losing. 

Saturday 1'Mass outplayed UConn throughout the first half, but 
still trailed, 8-0. Yet it was clear that the Redmen could still win. 
However the drutie change in the caliber of play exhibited by the 
im in the second half was clearly evident. 

Midway through the third period a Rhode Island scout in the 
press box remarked, "UMass doesn't want to play anymore . . . they're 
quitting. I\e never seen a Mass. team that didn't quit." This was a 
harsh statement, one that anyone connected with UMass sports should 
take to heart. , 

A team that could overcome an 18-6 deficit against UNH in the 
final game last year, then start this year with the thrilling eome-from- 
behind victory against Maine and score 22 points in the final period 
at Harvard can't be called "quitters." 

Yet the real "desire" appears to be missing. A small word that 
can turn an ordinary player into a superlative one when the big mo- 
ment in the game arrives. Will the "desire" come from winning some 
games? Thaf remains to be seen. But the rough portion of the sched- 
ule is over, except for B.U., and UMass should win four of the five 
final games. 

Certainly the best way to start is with a convincing pasting of 
Rhody this week. This can be the happiest Homecoming since 1954, 
when the Redmen defeated UConn, 20-13. That was our last Home- 
coming victory. Rhode Island has defeated us sev*>n times in a row. 

It's time for the worm to turn. Eleven hungry Redmen warriors 
\ should go all out to tear Rhody apart and cram abominable words 
like "quit" down the throats of certain football scouts. 



Soccer 

by BILL LENNON '61 

UConn's powerful soccermen 
romped over a hapless Redmen 
eleven at Storrs Saturday morn- 
ing. The shirt-sleeved fans, en- 
joying Dad's Day at the Univer- 
sity, watched the Huskies over- 
come a one-point deficit and win 

9-1. 

The Redmen hooters, hoping for 
an upset, scored Brst as Nicholas 
Bazos capitalized on a penalty 
shot in the first quarter. 

UConn, rudely awakened, re- 
taliated by scoring nine times 
while blanking their neighbors 
from the North. 

The alumni returning for 
Homecoming this weekend will 
not have the opportunity to see 
the soccer team in action. The 
Redmen will play, however, when 
they invade Trinity Friday after- 
noon.

FALL THEME FESTS 
POSTPONED BY IFC 



LARRY RAYNER, News Editor 



The Interfraternity Council 
Wednesday voted to postpone the 
fraternity theme parties compe- 
tition until next semester. 

The motion was brought up at 
the Council of Committees meet- 
ing by IFC Social Chairman Clark 
Lennon (TKE) and passed by a 
vote of 14-7 after a brief dis- 
cussion. Lennon recommended the 
motion on the grounds that the 
social chairmen of the fraterni- 
ties unanimously agreed that 
"there is not enough time between 
now and November 7, the date 
set for the parties, to set up a 
completely fair, effective method 
of judging the theme parties." 

After being passed by the Coun- 
cil of Committees, the motion 
went before the Fraternity presi- 
dents. 

Elliot Sohmer (TEP), IFC 
secretary, agreed with sponsor 



Lennon saying that, "if the judges 
don't have a specific criterion for 
judging the parties, the newer, 
brick houses have an advantage." 
He also pointed out that "if we 
arc going to give points for these 
parties, we should be fair about 
it." 

Bill Starkweather, adviser to 
the IFC, charged that the Social 
chairmen of the frats were "miss- 
ing the whole point of the theme 
parties. They are supposed to 
highlight the social parties of the 
fraternities. The only reason that 
points are awarded is to guaran- 
tee that all the fraternities will 
participate. "The theme parties," 
he continued, "would give the fra- 
ternities the much needed boost 
in the arm socially." 

Asked if the parties couldn't 
be scheduled later in the semester,

Resignation Of Dave Mraz 
Causes Furor In Senate 



Amherst Bicentennial 
Starts Saturday 



by MONETTA WRONSKI '63 

The town of Amherst will be- 
girt its 200th anniversary celebra- 
tion Saturday. Festivities are 
scheduled from Oct. 17 to the 
25th, honoring many of the com- 
munity's distinguished members, 
among them the poet, Emily 
Dickinson, the lexicographer, 
Noah Webster, the modern poet, 
Robert Frost, Senator Stuart 
Symington, now of Missouri, and 
Adm Jerauld Wright, Command- 
er-in-Chief of the U. S. Atlantic 
fleet 

October 17 has been designated 
as Univ. of Mass. Day. Sen. Sym- 
ington and Adm. Wright will re- 
ceive honorary degrees at the 
Homecoming Day convocation, 
with Sen. Symington as the main 



speaker. Also participating in the 
event will be Sidney Waugh, 
American sculptor. 

Amherst was founded in 1759 
and named for the British gen- 
eral. Lord Jeffery Amherst, for 
whom Amherst College is also 
named. 

A schedule of the week's events 
is as follows: 

Oct. 16 — UMass float parade 
Oct. 17 — Univ. of Mass. Day 
Oct. 18— Churches Day 
Oct. 19 — Agriculture Day 
Oct. 20 — Town Government 
Oct. 21 — Arts Day (dedication of 
Robert Frost room at 
Jones Library) 
Oct. 22— Schools Day 
Oct. 24 — Amherst College Day 
Oct. 25 — Bicentennial Parade 



A furor over the resignation 
of Senator Dave Mraz '61 high- 
lighted Wednesday night's Senate 
meeting. Earlier fn the day Mraz's 
resignation had been published in 
the Collegian. It goes into effect 
November 3. 

When asked by Senator Dennis 
Twohig '61 why he set Nov. 3 as 
the date of resignation, Mraz re- 
plied, "Being election chairman I 
decided it wouldn't be very nice 
to duck out the night before 
Freshmen elections and shirk res- 
ponsibility." He was referring to 
the primary elections for officers 
of the Class of '63, to be held on 
Thursday, October 22, and the 
regular election scheduled for the 
following' Thursday. 

Twohig then spoke against ac- 
cepting the resignation. "I don't 
respect him for what he did and 
will not accept his resignation. I 
hope nobody in this room does," 
declared Twohig, "What he did 
was in bad taste." 

In defense of Mraz, Sen. Joe 
Patten '62 said, "I think a motion 
of censure is entirely out of place. 
Mraz has worked hard for the 
Senate. If the Sepat< can't stand 
public criticism, it ie apparently 
very weak." Commented Sen. 
Jack Knight '60, "If the Univer 



ALAN FINKLESTEIN '61 

sity president can do it, so can 
Mraz." 

Mraz, speaking in his own be- 
half, said, "During the past year 
I've worked hard to raise the 
standing of the Senate in the eyes 
of the student body. I put the let- 
ter in the Collegian to let the 
student body know just what goes 
on here." The motion for censure 
was defeated and a motion was 




made to accept the resignation 
with deep regret. Stated Senator 
Knowlton, "I can see no reason 
for regret. I cannot see that his 
action is in any way going to help 
the situation." 

Senate Pres. Bob Zelis '60 re- 
linquished his chair to Vice-presi- 
dent Twohig and added, "I don't 
regret it either. Last year was 
the best year in the history of 
the Student Senate, no thanks to 
Senator Mraz." 

Answered Mraz, "I don't recall 
when I've ever heard such slander 
on the Senate floor." The resigna- 
tion was finally accepted with no 
stipulations. 

Later the Senate appropriated 
$12 for three subscriptions to the 
Massachusetts Review, two to be 
placed in the library, and one in 
the S.U. reading room.

A much-honored coed from 
Shrewsbury, Mass., Tammy Ide, 
president of Mortarboard, has 
taken an active part in campus 
activities. Corresponding secre- 
tary of Pi Beta Phi and a past 
member of the Scrolls, Concert

Parking Banned 
In SU Area 

The campus police department 
has announced special parking 
regulations for the Homecoming 
Weekend. 

According to the announcement 
there will be no parking allowed 
in front of the Student Union or 
on the North side of Machmer 
hall. A portion of North lot (in 
the rear of Draper Hall) will

In answer to what she thought 
was the greatest improvement at 
the Univeristy this year, Tammy 
said: "It is difficult to select one 
specific event as the greatest im- 
provement this year. However, 
the winning of the pay raises for 
the faculty and the opening of 
the new addition to the library 
are. two factors which will great- 
ly increase the prestige of the 
University." 

Tammy's future plans include 
publishing and Library Science.

UMass Grads 
Top The Field 
Of Research 

by CAROL ROONEY '60 

Alumni havo shown the Uni- 
versity to *; Ov.i*w.... .i hi 
science education in New Eng- 
land and the nation. 

In a survey published in 1951, 
by Science, a magazine that ranks 
colleges and universities on the 
number of graduates, per 1,000 
undergraduates, to receive Ph.D. 
degrees and listings in American 
Men of Science, the University of 
Massachusetts ranked fifth in the 
nation and first in New England 
— proof of the high quality of 
undergraduate training. 

Students here at the Univer- 
sity may major and earn a mas- 
ter's degree in every department 
in science and a doctorate pro- 
gram is available in chemistry, 
zoology, botany, bacteriology, en- 
tomology, agronomy, food science, 
food technology, plant pathology, 
and poultry science. There is cur- 
rently over $1,000,000 for re- 
search in the various depart- 
ments, from the Atomic Energy 
Commission, the National Science 
Foundation, the United States 
Public Health Service and others. 
The Chemistry department is 
one of the largest at the gradu- 
ate and undergraduate levels. Dr. 
Richard S. Stein of the faculty 
is internationally famous in high 
polymer chemistry. He is one of 
the many engaged in research in 
addition to teaching duties. 

We were the first college, 
(1899), to organize courses in 
entomology leading to the M.S. 
and Ph.D. degrees. Dr. Charles 
Alexander, formerly with the de- 
partment, brought attention to 
the university as he is world 
known and an authority on crane 
flies. Graduates of the Entomol- 
ogy department have taken emi- 
nent positions in their field in 
over 30 foreign countries and in 
43 states. 

Botany is another science in 
which UMass. has proved a lead- 
er in education. Our graduates 
have gone on to head botany de- 
partments in universities such at 
the University of Illinois, Michi-

HOMECOMING 59 

Graduate or Alumnus? 

Massachusetts Agricultural College, 
Alumni Bulletin-Sept, 192U: 
Freshmen enrollment — 178. 

University of Massachusetts, 
Massachusetts Alumnus — Sept., 1959: 
^ Freshmen enrollment — 1650. 



What a change in 35 years! The status 
of the University has altered considerably in 
this relatively short period, not only because 
of the huge class enrollment but because of 
the changes within the University itself. In 
this thriving scholastic community we find 
an ever increasing need for the loyalty and 
devotion of the all-important Alumni. 

There is a distinct difference in the defi- 
nitions of a graduate and an alumnus. A 
'graduate' is interested in his educational 
institution only while he is attending it. An 
'alumnus' shows interest in his educational 
institution after graduation. 

This Homecoming, the Alumni are the 
former students who take an active part in 
the Aiuir. : ! realization and pride in their 
Alma Mater. Many have made noteworthy 
achievements: Dr. Joel Goldthwait '85, the 
oldest alumnus (according to the Alumni of- 
fice) ; Louis Lyons '18, head of Harvard's 
Nieman Foundation for Journalism and this 
year's winner of the Freedom Foundation's 
medal: William Manchester '46, recipient of 
a Guggenheim Fellowship for fiction, author 
of a recent book on the Rockefeller family; 
Shirley Upton Drew '31, head of the Michi- 
gan Child Study Foundation ; Dr. Alton Gus- 
tafson '26, recipient of a Science Faculty Fel- 
lowship Giant from the National Science 
Foundation; Conrad Wirth '23, chosen as one 
of the top ten career daeB in the Federal Gov- 
ernment for 1959; Murray Lincoln '11, head 
Of the CARE organization. 

There are many ways that an alumnus 
can work toward the improvement of his 
Alma Mater. Most Important is the economic 
and moral support of the Alumni organiza- 
tion. Many schools are largely aided by alum- 
ni for financial support. An alumni organiz- 
ation helps students through its various sub- 
divisions; among these, scholarship boards, 
job placement, and guidance. 

The continued loyalty of the Alumni 
group immeasurably strengthens the pro- 
gressive thinking which is so important to 
the survival of any educational institution. 
Successful Alumni serve as an inspiration to 
the students and also to each other. 

It is the responsibility of each member 
of the University, past or present, to make 
the decision .... Will 1 l>e a graduate or an 
alumnus? What better time to make this de- 
cision than now . . . Homecoming 1959.

When The Floats 
Go Marching By 

by AL I.I TO "•" 

Everyone is writing about 
the big Homecoming Week- 
end with the floats and the 
rallies and the book-burning 
and everything, but many of 
you are still unclear as to 
what actually takes place. 

First out come the mothers 

and fathers with all the kids. 

One of these cherubs will 

sunn open his mouth and say 

eetly to his mother, 

•Mommy, Mommy, if da 

floats don't come pretty soon, 

I'm gonna "yell and scream and kick you in the teeth like 

last year!" Right away the mother has formed an intense 

dislike for the float parade. Wait, we .mven't even started 

t V tr i« • • • * 

The floats are not in sight because they have all ar- 
rived at North Hadley Road at the same time from 12 dif- 
ferent directions. Horns are blowing, people are screaming 
and singing IFC and Pan Hoi national anthems: everyone 
is still in the process of banging nails into the fingers of 
those who have been so foolish as to volunteer to hold to- 
gether two by fours — and in the midst of this happy may- 
hem, nine red-coated gentlemen with tired blood are crying. 

And back in the sedate little hamlet of Amherst, 100 
children are kicking their respective mothers in the teeth. 

A duck-tailed youth in a motorcycle jacket turns to a 
companion who is carving his initials in the palm of his 
hand .... 

'Hey, Mario, get da tomatoes ready; dem floats is com-

At this point, the floats are proceeding, down Amity 
Street when the inevitable occurs. Someone in the parade 
screams, "Argh, it's raining, it's raining!" and throws him-

bad idea to have stayed open for the night.

Someone spreads a filthy rumor that the judges are 
standing in front of Barsie'a so every group does its ut- 
most in front of Barsie's- the floats do tricks; everybody 
sings, dances, throws candy to the kids — and the people in 
front, of Barsie's love it, but the people in front of Barsie's 
aren't the judges. The judges Bfe standing two blocks far-

OFF THE RECORDS 

by VKKN PKRO '«» 

Thanks to a writer named John Ounther many 
of us have b.en taken on carefully documented trips 
"inside" many of the most important countries in 
the world today. Recently, thanks to the people at 
th.' Verve recording company, a great many of us 
have taken another kind of very interesting trip, a 
trip inside Shelley Berman. 

Herman's style in presenting comic monologues 
has been subjected to analysis and criticism by 
everyone from Mort Sahl to television critics across 
the country. Someone, somewhere, may have hit 
upon the correct interpretation of his talent, but 
critics seldom agree with one another on it. 

One school of thought on the subject contends 
that Shelley is a "method actor" who has turned his 
talents to a field which has never before received 
this treatment. That these talents do exist and are 
diversified is seldom, if ever, denied. Shelley walks 
onto a stage, sits down on a stool, and with no other 
props makes you feel and see the actions he de- 
scribes. The visual part of his act, the facial ex- 
pressions, the motions of the hands, are for the most 
part supplementary, and need not be seen in order 
to derive full satisfaction from the act. 

For example, in several of his routines he talks 
to unseen friends on an imaginary telephone and his 
facial expressions merely add to the mood of curio- 
sity, disgust, embarrassment, anger or the like which 
he represents equally well with his voice, We never 
hear what the person on the other end of the line 
is saying, but because we have all had somewhat 
similar experiences, or have imagined such experi- 
ences we can easily fill in the gaps. This brings us 
to another related school of thought on the nature 
of his humor and its success. 

In the first place, Shelley's material is related 
to everyday experiences, to the things about us 
which we see every day and yet do not really see. 
He takes these experiences and shows us the humor 
in them, humor which was there all along, but which 
must be interpreted to be appreciated. 

Take, for example, his monologue on commercial 
airlines, airplanes, and flying. Those of us who fly 
commercially probably accept the propaganda say- 
ing that flying is THE SAFEST WAY TO TRAVEL. 
We are given signed statements by happy users of 
the airline's services, endorsements signed by scads 
of famous people, pamphlets describing the bless- 
ings of sjteed and convenience, arriving early and 
staying late, comfort and luxury. There is no humor 
here at all, until Shelley describes his arrival at an 
airline terminal, and his realization that there is a 
booming business selling life insurance He then 
COmei out with a classic statement: "I may be sure 
of arriving safely, but there must be a serloUS douW 
in somebody's mind as to whether or not I'm going 
to arrive safely." 

Another common experience with is given the 
Berman treatment Is "the morning after the night 
before" Ever happen to you? Then you'll probably 
enjoy hearing Shelley describe it, especially when 
he begs the Alka Seltzer not to fizz. Several of the 
eian who auditioned this record with me said, 
"Sounds familiar", and it does. This is most likely 
another reason for Shelley's success. 

Whatever the correct analysis of the style of 
Shelley Berman, the fact the Verve recording, IN- 
SIDE SHELLEY HERMAN, has been on the best- 
selling album charts across the country, often in the 
top ten, for many weeks now shows that it presents 
Herman in I very favorable light. I like it, but then, 
too, maybe I'm a bit prejudiced since his cousin, who 
happens te be » friend Of mine, was on this campus 
recently. Small world isn't it? 



THE MASSACHUSETTS COLLEGIAN. FRIDAY, OCTOBER 16, 1959 



In a Very Minor Key 

by PAT WARD '61 

I just read a sentence in a bacteriology book 
which said, "In a casual conversation it is more con- 
venient to refer to the causative agent of tuber- 
culosis as the tubercle bacillus than as Mycobacteri- 
um tuberculosis." 

I don't know what kind of casual conversations 
bacteriologists have, but I know darn well what 
would happen if I went around referring to the 
tubercle bacillus in my casual conversations. Every- 
one would think I was crazy, that's what. 

In my circle, bacteria are snubbed and ignored, 
and it's no use any book trying to make them so- 
cially acceptable. They're not, they're not, and no- 
body is going to fool me into getting familiar with 
Mycobacterium tuberculosis by telling me to go 
ahead and call it tubercle bacillus. I just won't do 
it!

Welcome to all Alumni, especially Alumnae! 

We hope you'll find time to stroll about the women's area in the 
north part of campus. Nine dormitories, including two opened this 
September, are the colloge homes of 1500 women students. Nearest the 
Commons is Mary Lyon House, named in honor of Massachusetts' 
gnat woman educator. North of it is Dwight House which honors a 
beloved friend of the University, Mrs. William Dwight of Holyoke. 
The dorms are similar to our others with one pleasing change in lounge 
furniture to Danish Modern. 

"Integration" of all four classes in each dorm is now a well-ac- 
cepted policy, especially popular with our 705 Freshman girls who 
appreciate the presence of friendly, helpful upperclassmen. Two 
Scrolls in each House are guiding an improved "Big Sister" program 
this year. 

The dorm area is enhanced by the Women's Physical Education 
Building which opened a year ago. Its activities have given women 
students a wonderful boost in morale, recreational swimming and Co- 
Rec Nights being particularly popular. Over Columbus Day Weekend 
the Naiads were hostesses to women student and faculty delegates 
from colleges throughout the eastern half of the U.S. at a Conference 
on Synchronized Swimming. It was a delight to look in on open ses- 
sions in the pool where great skill and creative artistic ability was 
displayed. 

One milestone this year is the formation of a new Scholastic 
Honor Society for Freshman Women. Twenty-one women of the Class 
of '62 met the required grade-average of 3.5 or better! They have 
elected as President, Irene Tyminski, pre-med major from Chicopee, 
and as Faculty Adviser. Miss Leonta Horrigan of the English De- 
partment. Their purpose is to aid and motivate Freshmen to high 
scholastic endeavor. They have been approved by the Council of Alpha 
Lambda Delta and look forward to their installation as a chapter of 
this well-known National Scholastic Honor Society. 

There are increasing reasons for being proud of your Alma Mater. 
Keep in touch and keep working with all of us to make it better than 

ever. 

• Good wishes always, 

Helen Curtis 
Dean of Women

Dear Alumni: 

On behalf of the Division of Physical Education and the Depart- 
ment of Athletics I would like to take this opportunity to welcome 
all our alumni and guests who arc on campus for another Fall Home- 
coming weekend. 

Perhaps this is the first time in several years that some of you 
have had the opportunity to return to your alma mater, and I'm sure 
you are amazed at the many changes that meet your eyes. 

The Division of Physical Education and Department of Athletics 
have been going through a transition period which we feel will result. 
very shortly in a well rounded total quality program. 

Facility-wise our Women's Physical Education Building on the 
North end of campus is one of the finest such edifices in the country 
The Men's Physical Education Building which will be located West of 
our Curry Hicks Building is in the blue print stage and we hope it will 
be a reality within a few years. Seventeen acres of new fields on the 
western boundary of campus have just been turned over to the division 
and are being used for class instruction as well as team practice areas. 
The Master Plan indicates that our present Alumni Field will be 
aeed for more housing apartments as well as a site for the School of 
Business and it is apparent that we will be moving our football play- 
ing facilities closer to the relocated Route 116 within the next two 
years. 

We are very proud of the fact that our intercollegiate program, 
which embraces varsity and freshman competition in fifteen sports, is 
the most comprehensive of any of the New England land grant uni- 
versities. In addition our intramural program is growing each year 
and only limited facilities at the moment restrict this phase of our 
program from being even more complete. Revisions and changes in 
our curriculum have helped bolster our physical education major pro- 
gram and in addition we are now offering a major in recreation leader- 
ship. 

We are in the third year of our recently adopted athletic policy 
and we are beginning to move upward in the final standings in our 
Yankee Conference competition. 

It is very evident to us who are close to the scene that definite 
progress is being made in many facets of your University which are 
just beginning to show We trust you will continue to favor us with 
your support and we know that you will have every reason to he proud 
of your University as we continue to grow and move forward. 

Cordially yours, 

Warren P. McGuirk 
Director of Athletics and Head, 
Division of Physical Education 
University of Massachusetts 



Alumni Active 
In Undergrad 
Activities 

One of the most important as- 
pects of work done by the Associ- 
ate Alumni on campus is the 
sponsoring and guidance of under- 
graduate activities. Through the 
Student Contact .Committee, the 
Alumni Association is able to 
bring to the undergraduates a full 
explanation of its program and 
to establish a working liaison 
with various undergraduate or- 
ganizations. 

In the window of the Univer- 
sity Store, you will see a display 
made up by the Student Contact 
Committee which is composed of 
students from various areas of 
the campus. There is a large 
map of the United States show- 
ing a distribution of graduates 
from the University along with 
pictures of some of the distin- 
guished graduates and their vari- 
ous occupations. This display not 
only emphasizes Alumni activities 
off campus but also displays 
graphically the undergraduate 
activities to which the Alumni 
have made contributions. The 
Annual Spring Arts Festival is an 
outstanding example. In addition 
to scholarships, the Association 
strives to obtain funds for fel- 
lowships, academic chairs, and 
will next year begin a series of 
distinguished lectures to be 
known as the Mi 
in honor of thr 
have died in the 
country.

Welcome Home Alumni ! 

In the midst of change and recognizing the challenge of 
the space age in which we live, your Alma Mater welcomes 
you back to Amherst and fhe campus of your state univer- 
sity. I am sure that in the future you will all be vitally in- 
terested in maintaining your personal allegiance and sup- 
port of the development and progress of this institution. To 
defend and improve its standards will always be the respon- 
sibility of every graduate as well as the future faculty and

degree that will last throughout your life. In these beautiful 
and inspiring environs may you renew your faith and 
strengthen your support.

UM Makes 
First Leap 

There were many flushed, ex- 
cited faces around Orange Air- 
port last weekend as the Univer- 
sity of Massachusetts Sport 
Parachute Club began its opera- 
tion. On Saturday a total of 12 
fledgling skydivers took the long 
step for the first time with sev- 
eral members jumping twice. 

Unfortunately Sunday and 
Monday the Skydiving operation 
was weathered out, according to 
club president and jutnpm aster 
Dana Smith. Smith also noted 
that he and field officer Elsworth 
Getchel managed to put out Gil 
Sears, '60, a married student and 
Ed Harvey, '61, early Sunday 
morning before the weather 
moved in. Monday was devoted 
to chute packing, pre-jump train- 
ing and the relating of old jump 
stories over cups of coffee. 

The University of Massachu- 
setts Sport Parachute Club met 
Wednesday, Oct. 14, in Machmer 
E-17 at 7:00-9:00 P.M. to discuss 
future operations, the buying of 
a complete jump outfit, and to 
hear the personal jump histories 
of the students who leaped into 
the sky last weekend. 

Two women students, Treasur- 
er Sandy Hill and Linda Frissell, 
were ready and waiting to make 
their first parachute jump, hav- 
ing completed all pre-jump train- 
ing and parachute indoctrination, 
but were unable to perform be- 
cause of inclement weather con- 
ditions, mainly high winds Mon- 
day. Parachuting operations will 
continue next weekend, weather 
permitting; and as many begin- 
ners as possible will be put out.

To the Alumni : 

My greetings to you and certainly a hearty welcome 
back are the principle parts of this letter. You will see many 
changes — even we do when we go to Boston for a day. Hope- 
fully, each addition is a good one and needed. Lood at the 
men's dorms, for instance — if you haven't been back for 
five years you'll see a whole complex of new ones. (Kappa 
Sigma even claims the one in their front yard is their addi- 
tion! We'll see!) 

There are two of us in the office now. William H. Burk- 
hardt, Jr., joined me in January 1958 and is administering 
the dorms which are equipped, for the most part, with 
Housemothers. Among other duties, he runs the I.D. card 
business, works with "Red" on parking and traffic, and 
quite nicely handles his share of the paper burden of the 
office. 

My major concerns are, as usual, counseling, frater- 
nities and their activities, concern for male students in gen- 
eral. I see some of the girls, too, and that makes life inter- 
esting. 

Enjoy your visit and eomo often. 

Sincerely yours, 

Robert S. Hopkins, Jr. 
Dean of Men 



Associate Alumni Plans 
Ahead To 1960 — Monetarily 



The Associate Alumni plans a 
very active fund-raising cam 
puign in 1960. They hope to more 
than double the results of 1959's 
FUND Drive which showed a 
total of $37,953.41. 

Mr. Evan V. Johnston. Execu- 
tive Director, who took over the 
• September first of this year 
expr sses optimism at attaining 
this goal and points out that 
there are several factors indi- 
cating that it can be done. There 
has been a definite increase in 
Alumni interest over the past 
few years. This is especially 
noticeahle since the rectal Legis- 
lative battle concerning increased 
•hers' salaries. The Asseciat ion 
hopes to capitalize on this 
interest in school activities. 
Salaries are not the only area 
on campus that need both in- 
creased financial support and 
moral hacking hy the Alumni. 
The Associate Alumni is also in 
its last year of financial support 



from the Commonwealth. Begin- 
ing in 19f>0, ■ part of the Execu- 
tive Director's salary will no 
longer come from the State and 
the organization will then have 
a more distinct identity. Mr. 
Johnston and the officers of the 
Association feel that the effects 
of this move will be salutary and 
permit the organization to pro- 
vide a vastly improved program 
of support. 

The Alumni Office plans a 
program to increase the produc- 
tive activity of Alumni clubs 
throughout the country. A num- 
ber of scholarships are offered 
each year to undergraduates, but 
it is Mr. Johnston's feeling that 
there is much more that can be 
done throughout the various 
clube in the way of providing 
funds for scholarships, fellow- 
ships and events of interest on 
campus, such as the annual Arts 
Festival which is Alumni 
supported. 



pose of maintaing this list is not 
only to keep track of potential 
donors to 'he Alumni fund, 



hut also to provide the Univer- 
sity with ties to those who 
studied here and to have avail- 
able a list of people in almost 
every imaginable job category. 
This latter service, of course, 
is invaluable in the field of place- 
ment and career guidance. The 
now growing University Alumni 
has been greatly expanded since 
World War II. 
The constant flow of informa- 



tion from the Alumni office to 
the Alumni results in a consider- 
able amount of work. All items 
of interest to Alumni are in- 
cluded in the Class Notes, a 
section of the quarterly publica- 
tion published by the Alumni 
Office. This has proven to be one 
of the most interesting portions 
of the magazine, as it provides 
old grads with a link to the 
University.

THE MASSACHUSETTS COLLEGIAN. FRIDAY. OCTOBER 16. 1959 



Deminoff 
Active In 
Alumni News 

by STEVE DOUNELIIS '60 

Graduating from a pamphlet- 
type bulletin to its present mag- 
azine form is the Massachusetts 
Alumnus, edited by Mr. William 
Deminoff, the director of News 
and Publications at the Univer- 
sity, who serves in his spare 
time as its editor. 

Mr. Deminoff received his B.A. 
from the University of Massa- 
chusetts in 1952 and is currently 
completing his dissertation for a 
Ph.D. in English at Brown Uni- 
versity where he received his 
M.A. 

Before coming to the Univer- 
sity, Mr. Deminoff was an in- 
structor in the English depart- 
ment at Brown University. When 
he came here in 1957 as an in- 
structor in English, he became 




BILL DEMINOFF 



editor of the Massachusetts 
Alumnus, and in February 1959 
was appointed Director of News 
and Publications at UMass. 

He is married to the former 
Elizabeth Anne Jackson of War- 
wick, R.I, a 1953 graduate of 
Pembroke College, who serves 
as his chief assistant in prepar- 
ing the Alumnus for publication. 
They have one child, Anne 
Louise, 3, a "freshman" at the 
UM Nursery School. 

As a student at the University 
In 1951-2, Mr. Deminoff, discour- 
aged at the lack of needed phys- 
ical facilities, sought for ways to 
do something about it and found 
his medium in the Class Gif; 
Committee which gave funds to 
the alumni organization express- 
ly for the production of a bul- 
letin to be sent to all alumni. 
The issue that came out, with 
Mr. Deminoff as student editor, 
was an appeal to all alumni to 
recognize and aid their univer- 
sity in its growth — not only in 
number of students, but in the 
establishment of necessary facil- 
ities. It is through this medium 
that the dreams of 1952 became 
realities in 1959 — the Student 
Union, Machmer Hall, the Sci- 
ence Center and the Liberal Arts 
Building. 

The alumni magazine was 
brought up to professional stand- 
ards by Bob McCartney '41, who 
became editor of the Bulletin 
shortly after the publication of 
this "enlightening" issue. After 
his departure, the editorship was 
passed on to Walter Whittum, 
'25, on a pro tern basis. 

Now, under Mr. Deminoff, the 
Massachusetts Alumnus is a 32- 
page magazine published quar- 
terly by the Associate Alumnf or- 
ganization. It is divided into a 
Class Notes Section, Sports Sec- 
tion, Alumnuscope and an Exec- 
utive Director's Page. This year 
the iftagazine will be distributed

Points We Are Proud Of 



Mr. Johnston 
Heads Alumni 
First Year 

The purpose of the Associate 
Alumni is* to help the University 
in its overall program, both on 
campus and off." These words 
were spoken this past week by 
Evan Johnston, the new Execu- 
tive Director of the organization, 
to explain the purpose for the 
group's existence. 

Specifically, the Associate Al- 
umni, housed in Mem Hall, func- 
tions in two major areas: finan- 
cial and public relations. 

With the interest on the War 
Memorial Fund the organization 
hopes to bring distinguished lec- 
turers to this campus from all 
over the country. This program, 
however, won't go into effect for 
some time, partly because some 
lecturers must be booked more 
than a year in advance. 




EVAN JOHNSTON 



3k 



Old 



(^rad 



Bear with him! Things aren't what they used to be in the good 
old days when he and his slim companions (those stoutish men there 
pointing and recalling old scenes are some of them) walked here under 
these elms, sat in these lecture halls, laughed, sang, drank at the 
founts of knowledge. 

Professors were men of stature in his day — queer, some of them 
to be sure — but able, learned men. The old grad wishes he'd made 
more of them. And courses of study, they were better, too. Somehow 
men themselves were better; a more gifted class of men than his 
never went out into the world; judges, surgeons, presidents, managers, 
two or three millionaires. 

If you let down your guard, the old grad will be quick to tell 
you tales about them . . . "Ever hear how Art Whiff enpoof — he's one of 
the trustees now — got the cow upon the dormitory roof . . .?" (The un- 
dergraduate who did such a thing today would be regarded as a luna- 
tic.) But it's a classic in the old grad's mind. He'll also tell. you what a 
quarterback they had . . . "ran 90 yards, .~tc, against Yale . . " what 
a ball team, glee club, president . . . "one of ^he soundest educators 
of his day . . ." An old fogie, really, who cried in his soup. 

But where the old grad really hits his peak is at the alumni ban- 
quet in the gym. There with his classmates this respected man, civic 
and business leader, pillar of the church, will put on a paper hat, blow 
a bazoo and prance around the tables with a shining face giving his 
old class cheer . . . 

What an old fool I 

But no! No; you're wrong. There in a few golden hours he has 
succeeded in recapturing the glorious days of youth, the halcyon days 
when one of his chief worries was how to keep his hair from falling 
out. 

Bear with him. The poor fetlow's respite is so brief. Tomorrow 
he'll be back at his glass-topped desk facing diminishing returns, the 
dough he's lost on account of the OPA, strikes, lack of materials, and 
a dozen other woes. And in no fit condition to confront them! 



"The principle of the Fund 
will be used in developing Mem 
Hall into a fine alumni center," 
stated Johnston. The building 
came into existence in the early 
twenties as a memorial to University graduates killed in the First 
World War. A campaign to raise funds to enlarge the building fell 
short of its goal, and no large scale expansion was carried out. 

The Associate Alumni works through alumni clubs in various 
communities to further public relations and stimulate interest in the 
University. 

"One of the biggest worries of the Associate Alumni is to bolster 
its club program," Johnston commented. 

• "I go to meetings taking someone from the University (for ex- 
ample, President Mather, Provost McCune, or Secretary Gillespie) to 
bring the University to them and get them interested in the school 
and its undergraduate activities." 

As Executive Director of the Associate Alumni, Johnston sees 
that the policies of the Board of 
Directors are carried out. "I like 
my job very much," he comment- 
ed, adding that this is primarily 
a fund raising job, for which he 
has had 1 previous experience, as 
Director of Development at

The Lone Sentinel- -- 



Who Remembers? 




A solitary sentinel stands a silent watch over a deserted campus. This is the center of campus as 
viewed through the eyes of the past. This picture was taken before the turn of the century when 
the university was still an infant. 




No Longer Alone--- 




Who remembers "Old North" the site of the 'C Store, an infamous 
den of inequity. It is but one of the many old buildings that had 
to make way for the building program on campus. 

The New Era--- 



Above is seen the transformation that has taken place over the years. Now Old Chapel no longer 
stands alone. The Student Union, Goodell Library, Memorial Hall, and the Cage keep her company. 



Building Buildings 
Bigger Better — 



The building program continues 
as the new Liberal Arts Build- 
ing gets the finishing touches. 
The building in the background 
is Goodell Library. It is the

With The Fraternities 



AEPi 

With this week's lull in the 
football schedule, ABP1 has put 
emphasis on the approaching 
Homecoming Weekend and the 
[PC skits and sing. The social 
committee has planned a buffet 

dinner after the football game, a 
party Saturday night with a jazz 
band, and a formal dinner for 
the brothers and their dates fol- 
lowed by open house on Sunday. 
Sing chairman Sid Feldman has 
been very pleaaed with the en- 
thusiasm and progress of the 
rehearsals. 

AGR 

Under the direction of Howard 
Lindsay, we are working on the 
float for the parade Friday night. 
After the parade there will be an 
open house until 11:30. This 
Saturday evening there will be a 
buffet supper for brothers and 
dates, followed by dancing at the 
house to a four-piece dance band. 
The house extends congratula- 
tions to Sam Bowker on his pin- 
nine to Martha Frost. Best of 
luck! 

ALPHA SIG 

Things are really humming 
around the house now with the 
big week-end coming up. Plans 
and work are well under way on 
the float. The house is also plan- 
ning to have a jazz band for 
Saturday night's party. 
ATG 

The brothers have all been 
busy the past few days working 
hard on the float. Friday night 
after the parade the brothers at 
PSD and ATG will hold a casual 
party. Saturday night there will 
be a dress Op party at the house 
with a band. Sunday afternoon 
we will get together again with 
PSD and hold a party for the 
alumni and friends of the house. 
Aiter losing to TC last week we 
have mad.- a lot of changes so 
vvatrh out. 

KAPPA SIG 

Among the events for Home- 
coming, KS has planned a buffet 
trapper following the game for 
the toothers, alumni, and parents 
and guests of the brothers. Every- 
one is looking forward to an en- 
joyable weekend. Many brothers 
will be glad to hear that definite 
plans have been made concern- 
ing the TV set. °ur football team 
has made it three in a row. 

LAMBDA CHI 

Wednesday night Lambda Chi 
enjoyed I buffet supper with 
Kappa Alpha Theta. Brother Don 
Witkoski is kept busy with his 
position as drillmaster to the 
Precision. 'tt.>. The brothers are 
getting ready ftw their fall formal 
which will be Nov. 21. 

PHI Ml DELTA 

I m1 wee k end PW Mu enter- 
tained our National Treasurer, 
.Tack Miller, and his wife. We are 
looking forward to Homecoming 
with the parade and a party Fri- 
day night. Saturday we observe 
our sixth year as ■ fraternity on 
this carious. In observance we are 

planning an anniversary party 

and a Sunday buffet supper. 

PSD 

The "tw.. -toned house" has been 
bustling with activity this past 
week in preparation for Home- 
coming. Dave Hautenen and crew 
have done a marvelous job on the 
float. Let's hope it's worth all the 
effort. Thanks are due to the 
lovely young ladies who assisted. 
Congratulations to Walt Fujczak 
on his election to Tau Beta Pi, 
the engineering honor society. 
PHI SIG 

After much planning the Phi 
Sig's have started building their 
float. Although simple in design 
it embodies an all new theme 



by Bob Boulais '62 

which promises to be a winner. 
Social wise we have an exchange 
supper with KAT scheduled for 
Wednesday, and a buffet supper 
after Saturday's game. On the 
sports scene our football team re- 
mained idle this week, after beat- 
ing QTV 27-0 last Thursday. 
QTV 
Much work and effort has gone 
into QTV's contribution to the 
float parade. It appears to be our 
best float yet. "Willy" Massing- 
ham is our float chairman. 

Plans are well under way for 
a spectacular Homecoming Week- 
end at QTV. Many alumni and 
friends are expected for our three 
parties, to be climaxed by a 
"Night Club" Saturday night 
SAE 
Finishing touches are being ap- 
plied to the float, "Ram for 
Ramses". This week a commenda- 
tion was received from National 
for the fine work of Bob Powers 
and Steve Murphy at the National 
Convention held this summer. 
Steve Allen's success at the world 
famous leadership school in Chi- 
cago was also mentioned. 

All the brothers are looking 
forward to the return of numer- 
ous alumni for Homecoming. 
Congratulations to Tex Tatelli, 
our new Fraternity senator on his 
recent election. 

SIG EP 
Homecoming Weekend high- 
lights the social calendar at Sig 
Ep this weekend. Saturday night 
an Alumni Party will be featured 
including a banquet, skit, jazz 
band, and dancing. 

On the sports scene, the "Fly- 
ers" continued their winning ways 
with a 32-6 victory over TEP in 
the IFC Football League. 
TEP 
TEP is busily preparing for 
Homecoming Weekend and the 
IFC sing later this month. The 
Alumni may find difficulty in 
recognizing the chapter house, 
for the boys have done a great 
job of fixing it up. Many hours 
nave also been spent on the float 
which promises to be a big hit. 

TEP's voices are all tuned up 
in preparation for the IFC sing, 
and the football team is ready to 
rebound from last week's setback. 



TKE 

This is going to be a very busy 
week for the Tekes. Our float, 
although our theme hasn't been 
turned in, is well under way. This 
is the year that we hope to cap- 
ture a prize. The brothers have 
been working very hard making 
the float. 

Turning to the sing competi- 
tion, we have started rehearsals 
and we're looking forward to a 
smash hit. « 

Thursday we meet LCA for our 
third game. The brothers are 
hungry for their first win, but 
whether we have what it takes is 
yet to be seen. 

TC 

Preparations for the Fraternity 
Sing, Skits and for the Home- 
coming Float parade are dominat- 
ing the scene here this week. Our 
football team registered another 
win by defeating ATG 27-0, re- 
maining undefeated and unscored 
upon this season.

LANGUAGE MADE SIMPLE: NO. 1 

In this day of swift international communications, like radio, 
television, and the raft, it becomes more and more important 
to be solidly grounded in foreign languages. Accordingly, I 
have asked the makers of Philip Morris whether I might not 
occasionally forego levity in this column and instead use it for 
a lesson in language. 

"Of course, silly!" chuckled the makers of Philip Morris, 
tousling my yellow locks. Oh, grand men they are, just as full 
of natural goodness as the cigarettes they make, just as clean 
and fresh, just as friendly, just as agreeable to have along in 
all times and climes and places. "Of course, fond boy," laughed 
the makers and tossed me up and down in a blanket until, giddy 
with giggling, I bade them desist, and then we all had basins 
of farina and smoked Philip Morrises and sang songs until the 
campfire had turned to embers. 

For our first lesson in language we will take up French. We 
will approach. French in the modern manner— ignoring the 
tedious rules of grammar and concentrating instead on idiom. 
After all, when we no to France, what does it matter if we can 
patM and conjugate'.' What matters is that we .should be able 
to speak idiomatic conversational French. 

So, for the first exercise, translate the following real, true-to- 
life dialogue between two real, true-to-life Frenchmen named 
Claude (pronounced Clohd) and Pierre (also pronounced ('lend).

CLAUDE: (Jood morning, sir. Can you direct me to the

PIERRE: I have regret, but I am a stranger here myself. 

CLAUDE: Is it that you come from the France? 

PIERRE: You have right, 

CI. AT 1 )lv I also. Come, let us mount the airplane and return 
ourselves to the France. 

PIERRE: We must defend from smoking until the airplane 
elevates itself.

Philippe Maurice?

Question: Plans for use of Old Chapel at a religions C for all 

faiths have bei n under consideration by the chaplains and th. Univer- 
sity otlicials. Would y<>" lUpport a religious center like this or would 

you rather support a chape] for each of the three denominations? 

Larry liuhin 'fit;, Norton. "It would he ■ good 

up to sae Old Chapel as a center for all faiths. 

Something like this will merit participation. I 
the campus isn't big enough for a chapel for each 
of the three denominations." 




Sandy Williams '61, Attlehoro. "Eaeh religious 
group now could not support a chape! of its own. 
Someday in the future this could be realised but 
not now. Since more religious influence is needed 

now on campus, I consider the use of Old Chapel 
as a good plan." 






Gilbert Ohneaorge '63. Heading. "One chapel for 
all faiths is the best plan, with no specific influ- 
ence on any one religion. I would support it." 



Joe Buron '63, Fall River. "By the use of Old 

Chapel as a center for all faiths, I feel this will 

be more unified, rather than having 3 separate 

chapels. It would be a good idea to bring all the 

faiths together." 

Steve Murphy '60, Brookline. "We haven't the 
facilities now to build 3 separate chapels like 
Brandeis has. Using Old Chapel as a center for 
all the faiths is a good plan and I would support 
it." 



Ray Woodis '63, N. Brookfield. "We have the Old 
Chapel, so why not use it for this purpose. By 
having all the faiths working together, this could 
bring out more unity."

Kathy Lenkoski, our co-chairmen 
for the float, can be heard saying. 
"Just keep workin", at all hours

Homecoming Week-end promises 
to be a gala affair and "Pi Phi's 
Expecting Victory"! 



PHI DELTA NU 

The Phi Dolts have return -d 
from the long week-end. all set 
for an even busier week. We had 
a very successful house-warming 
tea, October 4, 1959, at which 
time our newly decorated home 
was opened to the campus. Last 
week, we also entertained Mrs. 
John Kenton and Mrs. Joseph

that loud music coming from last 
Thursday afternoon? And. in- 
cidentally. Lambda Chi, thanks 
for our flag. It was worth sing- 
ing for! LTncle Charlie called Fri- 
day night! Why-y-y-y-y-y not! 



Alumni Publications Spread 'Word' 



The main line of communica- 
tion between the University and 
its Alumni is the ALUMNUS 
and its supplementary Newslet- 
ter. This year there will be four 
issues of the ALUMNUS, ap- 
proximately two months apart 
with a Newsletter in off months 
for a total of eight mailings. 
The Editor of these publications, 
Mr. William Deminoff. Class of 
T>'J, who is also University Editor, 
has brought a great amount of 
talent into a revitalized and 
worthwhile publication. These 
magazines and Newsletters de- 
scribe not only campus activities 
but also events and happenings 
of the Alumni in their various 



locations throughout the world. 
The magazine is sent to all mem- 
bers of the Association and dis- 
tributed around the campus, es- 
tablishing a vital public-relations 
link without which we would be 
seriously hampered. 

In addition to these publica- 
tions, the Alumni Office and the 
Administration are collaborating 
on a Parents .Newsletter which 
will go out to the families of 
every student on campus, bring- 
ing them much closer to the 
"University family". This letter 
will be a quarterly and will con- 
tain many articles of informa- 
tion for parents about the activ- 
ities of their sons and daughters. 



THE MASSACHUSETTS COLLEGIAN, FRIDAY, OCTOBER 16. 1959 



UM Chorale Opens Singing Season 



The University of Massachu- 
setts Chorale will give its first 
performance next Wednesday, 
October 21, in Bowker Auditori- 
um. The program, which will be- 
gin at eight, will include Cari.s- 
simi's Jepthah and a group of 
lighter choruses. 

On Friday, October 23, at 
10:<>(> a.m., the Chorale will sing 
before 3000 members of the 
Hampden County Teachers' As- 
sociation at Springfield Munici- 
pal Auditorium. The songs in- 
cluded in this program will be: 
a chorus from an opera by Han- 
del, The Foolish Lover Squanders 
His Moments Brief of Joy; Alle- 
luia, by Alessando Scarlatti; two 
madrigals; Waltzing Matilda, an 
Australian folk song; and The 



Sinui Warrior, a South African 
song on which the University of 
Massachusetts' football cheering 
song is based. 

Carissimi's Jeptfmh contains 
sonn- of the most beautiful chor- 
uses in the world. It tells the 
story of Jepthah, leader of the 
Israelites, who vowed to God that 
he would sacrifice the first living 
creature he sees on returning 
home, if he is victorious over the 
Ammonites. His daughter greets 
him when he returns, and in 
beautiful choruses the Israelites 
lament her impending sacrifice. 
The part of Jepthah will be sung 
by Mr. Ethan Stanley, tenor, of 
Williston Academy, and Mrs. 
Shannon McCune, soprano, will 
sing the part of Jepthah's daugh- 



ter. Professor boric Alviani will 
sing the bass and baritone solos. 
Other students who are prepar- 
ing solos and ensembles are: 
Deanna Tan, graduate student, 
Judy Barney, '61, Arlaine Ander- 
son, '62, Ann Shutty, '61, Nancy 
Ringoen, *63, Barbara Wood, '63, 
Steve Allen, '61, and Fred Shotz, 
'62. 

There will be no admission 
charge. We are sure the Chor- 
ale's performance will be a me- 
morable one. 



GIVE 
BLOOD 



Omar Khayyam writes a new jingle 



Old Omar has come up with another corker of a 
couplet. Freely translated from the Persian: 

It's what's up front that counts 

If it hasn't got it there it hasn't got it 



True, the lines don't scan. But what 
do you expert from a tent-maker — 
the perfect rhyme of "Winston tastes 
good like a cigarette should"? 
We'll admit that something may have 
been lost in the translation. But when 
it comes to Winston, nothing i>» lost in 
the translation of rich, good tobacco 
taste. That's because up front of a 
pure white filter \^ intton has Kilter- 
Blend— a special selection of mild fla- 




vorful tobaccos specially processed 

for filter smoking. 

Winston is designeri to taste good. 

Or, as Omar puts it: 

The Moving Lighter lights; 

and having lit. 

Mick; ofT. Then you draw on IT, 
\nd hit by bit smoking pleasure 
mounts; 

With Filter-Blend up front, 
Winston's got what counts!

by JERRY GALLAGHER 62 



In honor of Homecoming Week 
I devote this column to some of 
the illustrious alumni who have 
(dis) graced this campus through- 
out the years. 

2nd Lt. Herbert Lily '42. Faint- 
ed and suffered fatal injuries at 
the sight of blood! The blood was 
caused by an 88 mm. shell that hit 
him square in the back. 

Kenneth (Blue-Gill) Fishman 
'38. Only man to attempt the 
Channel Swim underwater! His 
body washed ashore a week later. 

Irving Wurm '58. Perfected a 
new gasoline, on which he drove 
his Volkswagen through every 
state in the union, on one tank 
of gas! However, he did complain 
of a flooded engine somewhere 
between Los Angeles and Hono- 
lulu. 

Dr. Kurt VonBierstein '49. Dis- 
covered a small box capable of 
reproducing every sound of a 
symphony orchestra! He calls it 
Wunderbox. It is commonly calle I 
a radio. 

Orville Geranium '36. A bo- 
tanist, amazingly crossed a water- 
melon with a grape in hope o*f 
producing a grape the size of a 
watermelon! The results were 
equally amazing! A watermelon 
the size of a grape. 

Mike "Ratty" Kell '61. The 
toughest stud nt ever to graduate 
from the U. of M., broke a leg 
the first time he over stepped on 
the gas pedal of a car, and 
laughed uproariously! The leg 
belonged to an old lady who was 
in the way. 

Vincent Sap'ente '60. Suffered a 
fractured skull, a broken leg, and 



a sprained index finger, stepping 
on a cigarette butt! It was at the 
bottom of an open manhole. 

Well enough of this. Let's check 
into the activities of their equally 
sad contemporaries. 

The Outing Club is going on a 
"Bike Hike", this Sunday, Oct. 18 
to cover the area around Am- 
herst. Departure is from Skinner 
Parking Lot at 9:00 A.M. All 
that is needed is a bicycle and a 
noon lunch. In case of rain I 
would also advise an umbrella. 
The Christian Fellowship Meet- 
ing, scheduled for the Plymouth 
Room tonight, has moved it's time 
back from 7:00 P.M. to 6:00 P.M. 
due to the float parade. The

room of the S.U. While on the 
subject, the Square Dance Club 
meets every Wednesday night at 
7:00 P.M., so read this and tear 

down all those signs they've 

got up. 

There will bo a Homecoming 
Dance tomorrow evening from 
from 8-12 P.M. in the S.U. Ball- 
room. Admission will be $1.25 per 
couple. Music will be provided by

Redmen Ravaged Rams 
At '51 Homecoming, 40-7 



SPORTALK 



by PETE TEMPLE '60 

The UMass Redmen beat the 
Rhode Island Rams in the Home- 
eotnlng Day football game in 
1051. This, in itself, is no out- 
standing accomplishment, except 
Uu- the fact that the win has not 
been repeated in seven attempts 
since. 

But eight years ago the Red- 
men gave the Rams such a beat- 
ing that it will take them many 
more years to forget it. In that 
T»l contest the UMies rolled to a 
10-7 decision. 

Took Lead In Four Plays 

It took the men from UMass a 
mere four plays to get their as- 
sault under way. Junior halfback 
Gigi Howland capped the first 
UMass march by dashing the 
final ten yards to the end zone 
for the touchdown and the Red- 



Maynard . . .

students who work as corres- 
pondents for newspapers or who 
are in journalistic jobs on cam- 
pus, members of the Senior 
Board of the Collegian and stu- 
dents who major in journalism. 
Professor Musgrave is the club's 
advisor. 

Among journalism alumni who 
have made recent noteworthy 
news are: 

Louis M. Lyons '18, Director 
of the Nieman Fellowship at 
Harvard and News Analyst over 
WGBH in Boston, who was this 
year's winner of the Freedom

standing achievement in helping 
to bring about a better under- 
standing of the American way 
of life ..." through his televi- 
sion series called "Essentials of 
Freedom." 

Avrom Romm '48, Managing 
Editor of the Middletown (N.Y.) 
Daily Record, was the recipient 
for his newspaper of the N.W. 
Ayer and Son 1959 Award for 
the best-looking tabloid-size 
newspaper of its class in the 
country. 

From 1950 until 1955, Mr. 
Romm was the alumni repre- 
sentative on the Colhginn'a Pub-

Early in the second quarter 
Howland again crossed I he Rhodie 
goal line, this time on a one yard 
plunge and Don Smith converted 
the point after. The two teams 
played to a standstill for the re- 
mainder of the period, and at 
half time the Redmen took away 
a 13-0 lead. 

The start of the second half 
saw a revitalized Rhode Island 
team. Marching 72 yards alter 

UMass's only punt of the after- 
noon, the Rams pulled to within 
G points of the Redmen, 13-7, with 
six and one half minutes gone in 
the third canto. 

That was the end of the Rams' 
attack. The Eckmen, seemingly in- 
furiated by the Rhodie score, 
roared back with vengeance. 
Howland Scores Third 

Howland blasted over for his 
third tally of the game with four 
minutes left in the stanza and 
Smith again booted the extra 
point. On the last play of the 
quarter the Redmen scored again. 
This time halfback Buster Di- 
Vincenzo knifed over from the 
four and the Redmen moved out 
in front 26-7 

In the final period the inspired 



Redmen could do no wrong. With 
quarterback Noel Reebenacker, 
later to become a little All-Amer- 
ican, at the helm. UMass moved 
50 yards in three plays. Reeb 
carried for seven, passed 12 yards 
to Pyne, then carried over himself 
from one yard out. DiVincenzo 
split the uprights and the Red- 
men were in the van. :\\~.

The Rhode Island Rams come to 



One Of Redmen's Best 

This Homecoming game eight 
years ago was one of the best of- 
fensive shows ever put on by a 
UMass team. The Redmen rolled 
up 469 yards on the ground and 
another 100 through the air for 
a total of 569 yards, and racked 
up 26 first downs while register- 
ing their devastating win. 

Tomorrow the R 
take on the Rhod<- 
for the Homccomim 
peat of the 1951 
would be a proper 
the returning Alum 



n.-n 
and 



again 
Rams 
A re- 



ormance 
orae for 



Alumni Field tomorrow afternoon 
bent ofl spoiling another UMass 
homecoming Two years ago they 
turned the trick 28-13. Last fall 
tlv Redmen walked all over the 
Rami statistically, hut fumbled 
away the ball game, 24-8, 

Coach Charlie O'Rourke has 
never beaten our visitors. Tom 
Eck's crew ruled Rhody 40-7 in 
1951. 

Senior quart rback Roger Pear- 
son leads a veteran backfield in- 
to tomorrow's clash. Pearson 
has been the field general on the 
All Yankee Conference team the 
paal two seasons. Last year he 
picked up 487 yards in four games 
to lead the loop in total offense. 

Halfback John Rollins and full- 
back Bill Poland are well worth 
watching. Rollins is the Rams top 
ground gainer as well as Pear- 
son's favorite aerial target. Po- 
land was an all conference selec- 
tion two seasons back but was 
hampered by injuries most of last 
year. A bad ankle has forced him 
to see only limited action this fall. 

Like Maine, our homecoming 
guests have a weak and inexper- 
ienced forward Wall. The Redmen 
should win their first Homecom- 
ing game since 1954 tomorrow. 

Saturday Sidelight 

Michigan State is bowing out 
en its long tradition of allowing 



no women in the football press 
box. 

It came to the showdown stage 
when Suzette Ramsey was as- 
signed to -ports on the campus 
newspaper and promptly an- 
nounced she would like to cover 
football games. 

Sports Publicist Ered Stabley, 
who had kept women out of the 
press box because they were 
"distracting influences" promptly 
hacked down, although perhaps 
reluctantly, Be said he would lift 
the barrier. 

Michigan State Athletic Direc- 
tor Riggie Munn is in Suzette's 
corner. He said. "I'm sure the 
Athletic Department won't have 
any trouble getting along with 
her." 

Perhaps we should take notice. 
No offense. Vinnv. 



WMUA On The Air 

WML A will be on hand to 
bring the big homecoming clash 
to all UMass fans who can't get 
to Alumni Field. 

Hal Dutton will handle the play 
by play while Howie Wilson and 
Jim Treleaae fill in with color. 
Broadcast time is 1:20.

THE MASSACHUSETTS COLLEGIAN. FRIDAY. OCTOBER 16. 1959 



REDMEN PREPARE TO BURY HATCHET (IN RAMS) 



UMass Seeks Second 
YanCon Win vs. URI 



by VIN BASILE 

The Massachusetts Redmen 
will go after their second Yankee 
Conference win tomorrow, when 
they face off against the Univer- 
sity of Rhode Island Rams at 
Alumni Field, kickoff time 
scheduled for 1:30 p.m. 

For the Redmen it will be a 
matter of do or die if they hope 
to win the YanCon crown. Last 
Saturday's loss to Connecticut 




One of the bright parts of the 
Connecticut game was the out- 
standing play of the UMass de- 
fensive team. Fullback DICK 
HOSS. 5'9". 197 pound junior 
letterman from Rockland, has 
been one of the individual de- 
fensive standouts in all of the 
games so far this season. 



gives UMass a Conference record 
of 1 and 1. Rhode Island, with a 
record of one loss and one tie 
can be eliminated as a threat to 
Bean Pot aspirations, along with 
Maine, which has a 1-1-2 record 
thus far. Both Connecticut and 
New Hampshire are undefeated. 
Thus, a win tomorrow, while not 
guaranteeing a YanCon crown, 
will keep the UMass hopes alive. 

ROLAND AND DELN1CKAS 
STILL OUT 

Tomorrow's starting lineup for 
the Redmen wit probably be the 
same as last week. Still sorely 
missed are the services of half- 



•62, Sports Editor 
backs Tom Delnickas and Bob 
Roland. Delnickas will probably 
be sidelined for another two 
weeks, while Roland will be out 
for the remainder of the season. 
Both backs were injured in the 
Delaware game two weeks ago. 

Tomorrow's clash between the 
Redmen and the Bears will be 
the thirty-fourth meeting of 
these two clubs. Rhode Island 
has the overwhelming majority 
in this series of twenty-one wins 
as against ten loses and two ties. 

The Redmen's record against 
the Rams is the worst it has 
compiled against any team. 

Charlie O'Rourke's crew will 
have three reasons for wanting 
to beat Little Rhody. The first 
is to keep in contention for the 
Bean Pot, the second is a win in 
front of what is expected to be 
a large alumni homecoming, and 
the third reason is to climb up 
a notch in the series against the 
Rams. 

Off The Record 

Bad breaks have contributed 
to the Redmen's failure to click 
after their opening win against 
Maine. A little help from Lady 
Luck could have spelled the dif- 
ference in both the Harvard and 
UConn games. Only against 
Delaware could it be said the 
Redmen were outplayed ... It 
is interesting to note here that 
in last week's outing, UMass out 
played Connecticut all the way. 

The proof of this is in the fact 
that the Redmen gained over 200 
hundred yards rushing during 
the first half alone. However, 
the failure to hold on to the ball 
deep on the Huskies' territory 
proved fatal. ^

Don Saari (TKE), President of 
thr Fraternity Social Chairmen, 
answered that "this (November 
7) is the only date this semester 
that does not have a major event 
scheduled." 

Mark Nelson (PSK) pointed out 
that the social chairmen know 
what the situation is better than 
we (IFC) do. "I think -ve should 
go along with what they decide," 

he said. 

Starkweather suggested that 
the parties be held without the 
points. Saari said that this was 
brought up at the meeting of the 
social chairmen and approved un- 
animously. 

After 20 minutes of heated dis- 
cussion, President Tom Campbell 
(TC) called for a vote and Len- 
non's motion was approved 11-4. 

NO POINTS FOR DEBATES 

The IFC decided that, after 
talking it over with the members 
in the houses, that points should 
not be awarded for intermural 
debates. However, the council is 
urging all fraternity members in- 
terested in debating to form 
teams and participate in the reg- 
ular debating program. 

AMENDMENT PASSED 

An amendment to the IFC by- 
laws was passed after a brief

from Boston, is the fastest man

X-Countrymen 
Win Road Race 

by JOE LIPCHITZ '62 

Although there were no sched- 
uled track meets this past holiday 
weekend, both the varsity and 
freshmen were busy under the 
guise of the University of Massa- 
chusetts Track Club. 

In Springfield Dick Atkinson 
won a 4.6 mile road race with a 
time of 25:55. Dick is one of this 
year's cross-country co-captains. 
This has been his best race of 
the year and he has yet to reach 
his peak. 

In Boston the freshmen and 
varsity ran in the South Boston 
Road Race which covered a three- 
mile course. Here the Redmen 
came to life and took home five 
trophies, four individual and one 
team trophy.

It may be Interesting to note 
that the freshmen bested those 
varsity men that did run in this 
race. There has been talk around 
the locker room of the freshmen 
challenging the sophomores to a 
cross-country race, the length of 
which would be somewhere be- 
tween the Freshmen 2.75 miles 
and the varsity 1.5 mile course. 



You Think You 've Got Troubles? 




This end seems to have problems approaching. The Rhode Island 
Rams will also be approaching problems at Alumni Field Satur- 
day. Of course, we hope that no RI end gets quite as far as this 
fellow did (53 yds.), but, we'll give them their share of ups and 
downs. 

Forty Freshmen Show Up For 
Freshman Hoop Openings 

will be dressed for action. 

Tashman, Dunham, Conlin, and

been awarded scholarships, leav- 
ing eleven postions unfilled. 

At the end of a short warm- 
up session, Coach Zunik addressed 
the candidates. He stressed team- 
work and determination as the 
main factors in a winning team. 

At first glance, the candidates 
seemed to show a lot of potential, 
making the selection of twenty 
very difficult. It looks like a good 
year for the Frosh.

described the measure as leaving 
"too much interpretation to a few 
individuals," and Hal Lane (SPE) 
said that "this is an unwritten

posed by Dick Gaberman (AEPi),

Symington Features 
Of Government In 



Sen. Stuart Symington of Mis- 
souri, speaking at the annual 
homecoming convocation at the 
University of Massachusetts 
Saturday, advocated that the gov- 
ernment "open its books to the 
American people", to help them 
realize the true strength and dan- 
ger of our adversaries. He said 
that, aside from its physical and 
economic strength, America's 
greatest asset is its spiritual 
strength. 



by MONETTA WKONSKl '63 

In a private press conference 
on the subject of missiles Sen. 
Symington stated that overem- 
phasis on budget -balancing is 
jeopardizing American security. 
He listed his opinion of three 
prerequisites for peace: 

1. The ability to retaliate im- 
mediately in case of attack; 

1. The enemy's awareness of 
this ability; 

3. The ability to wage conven- 
tional war.

Provost McCune 
To Japan For 



Goes 
Study 



Agricul 
radnik, 



by SHARON CLARK 

Dr. Shannon McCune, Provost 
of the University of Massachu- 
setts, left Sunday on a trip to 
Japan to Study recent develop- 
ments in the 1C A- sponsored ex- 
change program between the 
American institution and Hok- 
kaido University in Sapporo. 
Japan. 

Pr. McCune. a distinguished 
geographer and expert on the 
Far East, will remain in Japan 
for a month. He will meet with 
the president and members of the 
staff of Hokkaido University and 
with U.S. officials in charge of 
the International Cooperation Ad- 
ministration mission in Japan. 

He will also visit sites at Sap- 
poro whore projects are being 
carried out as part of the ex- 
change program. 

During part of his stay, he will 
meet with officials at the U.S. 
Embassy in Tokyo to discuss the 
University's role in the program 
and to make recommendations for 
extending it. 

Presently, two members of the 
University's College of Agricul- 
ture are engaged in research and 
development projects at Hokkaido 
and eight members of the Japa- 
nese institution are attending the 
University of Massachusetts. Five 
more students are expected soon. 
The exchange program was be- 
gun in November 1957 after cor- 
respondence between the two 
schools the previous year. 

Hokkaido was established in 
1876 by Col. William Smith Clark, 
third president of the University 
of Mass., and several Japanese 
educators, who planned to estab- 
lish an agricultural college in 
Sapporo modeled after American 
agricultural colleges. 

In 1956 Pres. Mather, Dean 



'63 

then of the College of 
lire, and Dr. John Zah- 
now coordinator for the 
project, visited Hokkaido and re- 
established ties between the two 
schools. 

Dr. McCune visited Hokkaido 
in the summer of 1957, during a 
trip to Japan as chairman of the 
American delegation to a regional 
conference of the International

help lay the groundwork for the 
1CA exchange program. 

Author of some 90 articles on 
geographic, educational, and in- 
ternational affairs, and the book 
"Korea's Heritage: A Regional 
and Social Geography", published

Dr. McCune served as economic 
analyst and chief economic intel- 
ligence officer for the Board of 
Economic Warfare and Foreign 
Economic Administration. After

awarded the Medal of Freedom 
by the President of the United 
States. 

For his work as a geographer

Mather Hits State House 
4 Confusion\ Centralization 

by DAVID MANLEY 63 

President Mather, in a freewheeling, open talk, addressed a small 
group at the Public Health Auditorium last Thursday night. In his 
speech, which \vr. •■ sponsored by the Political Science Association, 
Mather told the audience that it was the trustees', not the legislature's 
right to appoint his successor. He said there was some "confusion" 
in the State House about this. 

Expressing a concern over the trustees' apparent ignorance of 
their rights, Mather *n : d it was the exclusive right of the trustees 
to appoint the president, and their choice was not subject to legisla- 
tive approval or interference. 

President Blather cited the Dartmouth College Supreme Court 
case, in which Daniel Webster defined the position of the trastees. 

The purpose of President Mather's speech, "The Campus and the 
State". was to gi N e an objective analysis of problems stemming from 
the relationship between the University and the State. 

Mather's chief criticism is the centralization of control in Boston 
through a bureaucracy set up by the Executive Branch to govern the 
University. He suggested the formation of a governing board which 
woufd be more closely attached to the University to offset this cen- 
tralization. 

He mentioned that a member of the legislature proposed further 
centralization by bringing the University back under the direction of 
the Commissioner of Education. To this Mather replied: "If that day 
ever comes, this University is doomed." 

President Mather went on to say, "The state university does not 
belong to the legislature; it belongs to the people." He said this idea 
was a joke, for the University has always been classified as "just an- 
other department" by the legislature. 

Mather added that, "If the President disapproves of the state's 
mandates, he should resign." 

Speaking of the relationship between the University of Massachu- 
setts and the state, he told his listeners that the trouble here is the 
legislature has never defined our "purposes". Thus the Legislators 
think of us in the same category as the other "state mental institu- 
tions". 

President Mather expressed his dislike for Artiele s-irty-three of 
the State'a Constitution which state* that all revenue must be turned 
<jr$r to the legislature* "We are the only state university that still 
has to do that," he said. "Consequently, the I'niversity has to plead 
for salary raises to acquire good professorg." 

He also touched upon the subject of pay increases, stating that 
"professors are an elite class" who are more deserving of a pay in- 
crease than the janitors in the State House. 



Analysis 
Address 



He said it was "too early to 
judge" the effectiveness of Soviet 
Premier Nikita Khrushchev's visit. 

He commented that there was 
"nothing new" in Khrushchev's 
disarmament plan, but perhaps it 
was a good sign that he offered 
it. 

Unification of the armed forces, 
in Symington's opinion, would re- 
duce friction and strengthen our 
military powers. 

Sen. Symington and Adm. 
Jerauld Wright, U.S. Atlantic 
Fleet Commander, were presented 
honorary degrees at the convoca- 
tion. 

Sen. Symington was b'orn in 
Amherst, educated in public 
schools in Baltimore, and received 
his B.A. degree at Yale after an 
honorable discharge from the 
Army. He was awarded the Medal 
of Merit in 1947 and the Dis- 
tinguished Setwice Medal in 1952. 

In 1955 he introduced an inter- 
national plan for disarmament 
which was passed unanimously by 
the Senate. 

Adm. Wright, also a native of 
Amherst, graduated from Anna- 
polis in 1917. He has been award- 
ed the Distinguished Service 
Medal. Legion of Merit, Gold and 
Silver Star Medals, and Letter of 
Commendation from his Com- 
mander-in-chief in the Pacific. He 
now resides at the U. S. Na%al 
Base in Norfolk, Va.

Peter Pan Grants 
Reduced Rates 

by AL FINKELSTEIN '61 

A reduced rate for students 
taking busses between Boston and 
Amherst went into effect this 
weekend Students wll be able to 
purchase two tickets to Boston 
for $0. The previous rate was 
$8.25. These tickets will be valid 
30 days to or from Boston, and 
are transferable. 

Since the Peter Pan Bus Lines 
extended its service to Amherst 
last month, members of the 
Senate and C^lhoian have been 
working for a reduction of rates. 

At a meeting Tuesday night an 
agreement with Peter Pieknelly, 
vice president of the company, 
was finally reached. 

Pieknelly said, "We are happy 
to make available to students of 
the I'niversity dependable bus 
service at a reduced rate." 

Earlier, Pieknelly said that the 
company had no intention of com- 
peting with car pools, where stu- 
dents pay $2 round trip. He said, 
"We could not possibly do that 
and stay in business." 

The new rates were announced 
at the Senate meeting Wednesday 
night by Senator Bob Armstrong 
'(50. chairman of the Senate Serv- 
ices Committee. 

"This new service is something 
that has been needed by the stu- 
dent* here at the University, and 
it's now available at a rate with* 
in their pocket books." Armstrong 
commented,

REDMEN RAMMED BY STAMPEDING RAMS 30-6 



Rollins Bewilders UMASS 
In Disappointing Upset 



by VIN BASILE 

The University of Rhode Is- 
land, behind the splendid broken- 
field running of halfback John 
Rollins, overwhelmed Charlie 
O'Rourke's Redmen, 30-6, before 
a Homecoming Day crowd of 
6500 at Alumni Field. 

The loss to the Rams means 
an elimination of UMass from 
any chance of winning the Bean 
Pot Crown. 

The only Redman score came 
in the second quarter. Senior 
halfback Bill Reynolds returned 
a Rollins punt 56 yards before 
he was stopped on the Ram 29 
yard line. Quarterback John Mc- 
Cormick then connected with 
halfback Jim Hickman for a 29 
yard touchdown pass play. Mc- 
Cormick's extra point pass was 
incomplete. 

Despite the lopsided score, 
Rhode Island only scored once in 
the first half. This came after 
one minute and 40 seconds of 
the second quarter, when quart- 
erback Charlie Vento completed 
a 21 yard pass to halfback Dick 
Grosz to complete a 60 yard 
drive in nine plays. 

During the second half, the 
Redmen were helpless, while Rol- 
lins paced the Rams to an easy 
upset 

Quarterback Roger Pearson 
scored the second marker for 
Rhody when he went over from 
the one to climax a 66 yard 
march. 

The next Ram marker came 
early in the fourth quarter, when 



'62, Sports Editor 
fullback Gene Peck scooted ten 
yards to pay dirt. 

Rhode Island completed its as- 
sault when fullback Bill Poland 
dashed over from the two, fol- 
lowing a 16 yard pass from 
Vento to Rollins. Shortly after, 
Rollins left the game to the ap- 
plause of both Massachusetts 
and Rhode Island fans. Rollins 
gained 114 yards, while pacing 
the Ram offense. 

Off The Record 

Saturday's game was a dis- 
gusting upset for the student 
body and the alumni. The loss 
eliminated UMass from a chance 
to win the YanCon crown, dis- 
appointed a huge Homecoming 
Day crowd, and gave Rhode Is- 
land win number 22, as against 
ten losses. Undoubtedly the Mon- 
day morning quarterbacks will 
have a lot to say. Who can blame 
them? This was supposed to be 
one of the best Redmen teams 
in years. Yet, since their upset 
victory over Maine, the Redmen 
have lost four straight. They 
went into Saturday's game 
picked as favorites . . . for the 
first time this year. 

Now, both the Alumni and 
student body will be looking for a 
scapegoat. Who it will be remains 
to be seen, but coach Charlie 
O'Rourke will probably draw the 
most fire. Yet, is O'Rourke to 
blame? A coach can only teach 
the fundamentals of football, he 
cannot play the game. 



He '8 Gone About As Far As He Can Go! 




UMass quarterback JOHN CONWAY (21) seems to have reached the end of the line of this play 
during Saturday's URI game. Like the rest of the UMass team, Conway didn't get very far against 
the Rams.

Is the football team to blame ? 
Are we lacking talent? 

Every Coach in the Yankee 
Conference, including O'Rourke 
predicted that this was one of 
the best Redmen teams to come 
along in years. 

Perhaps the front office is at 
fault. Maybe their methods of 
obtaining football players is in- 
adequate. 

One of these three is to blame. 

Perhaps all of them. 

No matter who is at fault one 
thing is ciear: something must be 
done, if we are to obtain a win- 
ning ball club.

Dean Helen S. Mitchell contributes to 'Food' 



Helen S. Mitchell, dean of the 
University of Massachusetts 
School of Home Economics, is 
among the nutrition experts who 
have compiled the U.S. Agricul- 
ture Department's annual Year 
Book of Agriculture. 

The 736-page 1959 volume is 
titled "Food", with advice from 
72 nutrition experts on how to 
eat better and cheaper. 

Dean Mitchell points out that 
most people are overweight sim- 
ply because they consume more 
calories than they use. 

She condemns the so-called 
"Miracle Diet", which many fash- 



ionable, and unfashionable Wom- 
en's magazines, and other pub- 
lications offer to the weight con- 
scious female. Miss Mitchell main- 
tains also that reducing drugs are 
useless, asserting that the only 



way to lose weight is to eat sen- 
sibly. 

Miss Mitchell is a graduate of 
Mount Holyoke College and re- 
ceived her Ph.D. from Yale Uni- 
versity. 



At 9:45 p.m. the annual Aqua 
Show will be held at Pratt Pool. 
Performances by the Coquin 
Swim Club of New York, State 
AAU Synchronized Duet and 
Team Swimming Champions, and 
a faculty canoe-tilt will head the 
program. Amherst's Double 
Quartet will provide entertain- 
ment from a raft, and Pat and 
Mike Close will do a water inter- 
pretation of the "Song of the 
Sirens" from "Ulysses." Bernie 
Kelly of Springfield, former 
Olympic diver, and Deerfield 
swimming coach Larry Boyle will 
give diving exhibitions. 

To add to the evening's pleas- 
ure there will be dancing in the 
Alumni Gymnasium from 9 
o'clock to midnight with music by 
the Philadelphia Jazz quartet. 

Tickets to the Mardi Gras, 
which includes free admission to 
the dance, are $1.00 per person. 
Prices for the Aqua Show are 
the same. Everyone is welcome. 
Tickets may be purchased at the 
door. . 



A Ave hundred dollar check and 
a free round-trip flight from New 
York to Germany are being of- 
fered to a senior or graduate col- 
lege or university student in the 
mid-Atlantic states for the most 
"perceptive and original" essay on 
some phase of German life. 



Goethe House announces essay contest

WHERE ARE THE CHECKS? 

About one thousand students are em- 
ployed by the various departments and or- 
ganizations of the University. These stu- 
dents, many of whom are married, work be- 
cause they have to in order to stay in college. 
They are dependent upon a prompt and ef- 
ficient processing and distribution of their 
wages and, for the majority, budget their 
expenses down to the last item. 

Last Friday, the Treasurer's office was 
supposed to have had the student pay checks 
ready for distribution. However, they didn't, 
a fact that put many students in an uncom- 
fortable financial position. Naturally they 
were distressed when they found out that the 
checks would not be ready until a week later. 

There are several factors, inherent in the 
system that the University uses to process 
the students' checks, that contribute to delays 
such at this: First, the students arc paid 
monthly, on the Friday closest to the tenth 
of each month, thus permitting a wide range 
Of actual pa'yment dates. Second, the Treas- 
urer's office must process the students' 
checks all at once, since that is the only prac- 
tical way the IBM system they use can be 
run." Third, and the greatest source of con- 
fusion according to the Treasurer's office, 
lies in the fact that the various departments 
handle the time cards of these students who 
work for them. They have to send the com- 
pleted cards to the Treasurer's office, where 
the checks are processed and given to the 
students. 

The delay this month was due to the fact 
that some of the departments did not hand 
in their student time cards on time. The 
Treasurer's office can have all student checks 
ready in one day, but only if all the time 
cards from all the departments are given to 
them before their deadline. While some de- 
partments are prompt in their handling of 
the cards, others are notoriously lax, either 
through ignorance of the system used by the 

iversity or through an inability to handle 
the system properly. 

Since the University uses this system in 
order to comply with state and federal reg- 
ulations, one cannot expect drastic changes 
in its workings. However, it does seem only 
fair that all the departments employing stu- 
dents should make a serious effort to get all 
their student time cards to the Treasurer's 
office before the deadline. After all, one 
thousand students are depending on them.

AN EXPERIMENT 
IN INTERNATIONAL LIVING 

by RICHARD HERMAN '60 

Editor's Note: This is the first article in a series of three by Mr. 
Herman, who spent the last year studying in Denmark at the Inter- 
national Peoples College. 

In the present world situation of strained international relationism 
and bloc-power-groups many people are finding difficulty in seeing 
a way out of this muddled cacophony of racial, national, regional, and 
ethical problems. Some find the answer in a proposed world govern- 
ment, others in strong power groups wielding a heavy economic club 
and still others in a closed-door nationalism iced with self interest. One 
thing, however, is clear; the big question of today still centers around 
understanding. Only through a clearer Interpretation and evaluation 
of others' aims and needs can a reasonable solution to the problem of 
world peace be attempted. 

In Elsinor, Denmark, on the eastern coast of Zealand, stands the 
International People's College (Den Internationale Hojskole). Founded 
in 1921, a little over a kilometer from Hamlet's Castle, the school was 
intended, as Peter Manniche, past principal of the college, wrote, "to 
help in the building of a bridge between nations by bringing students 
of various countries to meet and study together." 

Developing from the original manor house and rambling farm 
buildings in '21, the institution has grown in size and reputation until 
today plans are being drawn up for a complete overhauling of the 
school's facilities. There is even a rumor of a movement afoot to buy 
new pans to catch the leaking rainwater in the attic. Actually, plans 
are almost finished for the new main building, a rambling, three-wing 
structure which will help satisfy the growing needs of the school. 

As a result of this expansion and of the fine work of past years, 
November 4, 1958 saw some 17 nationalities registering at the school 
<> for the fall term. Students hailing from England, France, Switzerland, 
Norway, Yugoslavia, Persia, Denmark, America, Germany, Poland, 
Hungary, The Netherlands, Finland, Jordan, Ghana, India and the 
Faroe Islands all gathered together for some five months of learning 
and living together in an atmosphere of international harmony. Not 
to be outdone, the teaching staff represented four different countries: 
Denmark, Germany, Switzerland, and England. Classes were conducted 
in Danish, German, French, and English. The first meal found one sit- 
ting amidst a thundershower of languages to the I.P.C.'s traditional 
potatoes. 

All this relative strangeness wore off in short order as the days 
progressed, with the students organizing their classes for the coming 
term. It wasn't unusual for a pupil to come wandering into class, sit 
down expectantly and then jump up again when the professor began 
lecturing in same strange, unintelligible language. They found out 
later that the language was Danish and by that time most of them 
were also thoroughly engrossed in learning to speak "with potatops 
in their mouths." 

Following the initial organizational two weeks, the school settled 
down into the closest it would ever approach to quiet orderly living. 
Most of the students had come here to gain a new experience in inter- 
national living, and they were out to get all they could out of this uni- 
que opportunity. As a result, there were more ten parties, hull ses- 
sion and discussions than in any three fraternities I know of. When the 
ten-thirty bell rang for lock-up, if you peeked out into the halls you 
imagined yourself for a moment in a busy intersection during the 
evening rush. Arguments and discussions being concluded at doors, 
friendly good-byes being railed out and closed doors testifying that a 
conclusion wouldn't be reached until the wee hours in the morning 
soon fused the school into a living international organism. 




/nits many students in an 
ifortttbli financial position," 



While Pouring Over The Times... 

by JIM TRKLEASE '63 

There I was . . . sitting rebelliously in the Union lounge reading 
the New York Time* with my feet testing on the carpet despite signs 
saying — "Please Keep Feet Off Floor*. I skipped over to the TV sec- 
tlon. There I spotted an advertisement for the new series, "Charlie 
Chan Meets the Leper Men", formerly seen under the title of "The 
Intouchables". 

I also read that the President was given five minutes air time by 
Lucy and Desi to appc ar on TV in order to explain the strike situa- 
tion to the nation. Actually his speech appeared as a commercial for 
the United State Steel Hour Few people realize that the sponsor of 
that show is a subsidiary of Desilu Productions, as also are the United 
Nations, NATO, and other workshops But to get back to Ike, in dis- 
cussing the strikes, he made mention of the hardships it has brought 
upon the land . . . Four New York street gangs had to lay off 200 
members for lack of knives and 1ft kids in Syracuse donated their 
dental braces so the city's bridge could be completed. The strikes were 
really killing blows — look what it did to the "man of steel, Superman." 

Still on the TV page, Walt Disney was advertising that he will 
continue to bring America's legendary characters into our living room. 
This week's story is entitled, "The LEGEND of Charlie Van Doren" 
(previously seen under the title of "Pinocchio"). 

Rumors have it that several witnesses at the Congressional hear- 
ing were prompt. (| while appearing there, so now there will be an in- 
vestigation of the Congressional committee investigating TV quiz 
shows. The new inquisition will be headed by Mike Wallace and will 
appear under the title of "What's My Line?" A late bulletin nt the 
top of the page revealed that CBS has canceled all quiz shows . . . 
Their teleprompters broke down. 

Glancing at my watch I saw it wai time for my tutoring session 
with Hal Maivh and Jack Harry. So off I strolled, clenching my Tinu* 
in hand like David with sling. 



LETTERS 

"get religion down town 



>> 



To the Editor: 
Dear Sir: 

"The Poll Bearer" (Oct. 10) reads like a veritable 
Hymn to Togetherness which was, in and of itself, 
repulsive; but the proposal to use the Old Chapel, 
symbol of the triumph of education over supersti- 
tion, for a tri-faith chapel, where the Big Three can 
bow down by battalions, was enough to destroy all 
hope for the enlightened progress of the University. 

The use of a state building on land granted by the 
federal government for the promotion of personal 
religious beliefs represents, to me, a violation of the 
principle of the separation of Church and State. I 
find the idea of having my taxes and tuition used to 
support any religious endeavor, to be nothing short 
of abhorrent. It is enough that their "High Priests" 
have offices in the Student Union. 

If the people want to "get religion" let them go 
down town for it. Let's save the University for edu- 
cational purposes! 

Sincerely, 

Robie Hubley '61

THE SCROLLS' 
PURPOSES AND AIMS 

by ANNE WHITTINGTON '63 

On April 5, 1945, the Collegian heralded the in- 
stitution of a new honor society for sophomore 
women, organized with the help of Isogon. The 
Scrolls, as they were named, have since developed 
into a worthwhile group, giving valuable assistance 
to many campus organizations and activities. 

The purpose of Scrolls is to give recognition to 
members of the sophomore class, to foster leader- 
ship, scholarship, and fellowship among college 
women, and to promote college loyalty. Not only 
does this group cultivate high ideals known to col- 
lege women, but it serves in a practical way by 
participating in college functions. 

The Scrolls are constantly devising projects to 
aid the school. This year one of their most im- 
portant campaigns has been the Big and Little Sis- 
ter program, in which upper class women are given 
a "little sister" in the freshman class, to whom they 
offer help in adjusting to college ways. They en- 
courage big sisters to keep in touch with their lit- 
tle sisters throughout the year. 

In addition to this task, there is the yearly reg- 
istration dance with which the girls help. The pro- 
ceeds derived from this affair are contributed to 
the Student Emergency Fund and the University 
Women's Fund. The Scrolls also aid the Campus 
Chest by serving on its committee and assist the 
Registrar's Office at registration. A new plan calls 
for them to help the Provost's Office to sponsor a 
new guided tour of campus. 

The Scrolls are financed as are the other honor 
societies, receiving a small allotment at the be- 
ginning of each year, which pays for small essen- 
tials. They raise additional funds by selling bibs 
and beanies to incoming freshmen. In addition to 
that the girls give a dance with the Maroon Key 
after each year's activities night. The money raised 
from these two projects is used for scholarships 
awarded on Student Leaders' Night. 

Members of Scrolls are chosen by a complex 
process. Each year, between forty and fifty fresh- 
men are nominated by their classmates. These girls, 
along with others recommended by house counselors 
and other- campus leaders, are then voted on by the 
present members. The seventeen new Scrolls are 
tapped at Student Leaders' Night. 

The scholastic requirement for Scrolls is an 
average equal to or above that of the freshman 
women's average for the semester preceding elec- 
tion. This year a point average of 2.3 will be nec- 
essary. 

The society's three advisors are Miss Maida 
Riggs of the Women's Physical Education Dept., 
Mrs. Robert Lentilhon, wife of Prof. Lentilhon of 
the School of Business, and Miss Helen Curtis, 
Dean of Women, ail of whom are ready to counsel 
the group in their activities. 

It is with pride that we can look on the Scrolls 
in their fifteenth year of leadership and service.

Elections for the class of "<>.'<

to vote for them ? 

If you think the tales you've 
heard of Communist propaganda 
and the methods of American ad- 
vertisers are extreme, you ought 
to notice the high presure means 
used by freshmen seeking class 
office! Walk into the center of a

floor to ceiling with piece* of pa-

doesn't end there. Too bad if you

Footrickmen 
Trounce B.U. 

by JOE LIPCHITZ '62 

The UMass varsity cross-coun- 
try team upheld its undefeated 
fall record by soundly drubbing 
UConn and Boston University last 
Friday at Franklin Field in Bos- 
ton. The score was UMass 30; 
UConn 40; and B.U. 64. 

Although UConn accounted for 
the first and third men across the 
finish line they did not place 
another man until the eleventh 
spot. And B.U. which placed 
their first man in second position 
did not place another until 
sixteenth. 

The Footrickmen on the other 
hand placed Ralph Buschmann as 
their first man in fourth place,

Brown team.

and then proceeded to take every 
succeeding place through number 
ten spot. 

These seven men gave the Har- 
riers the five places it needed to 
score plus the two men allowed 
for displacement. These seven 
were : Buschmann, Atkinson, 
Hainer, Keelon, Barron, Kelsey 
and Young. 

This may well be the group that 
travels to the Yankee Conference 
meet on October 31. The next 
scheduled meet is today here at 
the University against Harvard 
at 3:00 p.m. 

Precisionettes 
At R.I. Game 

by JUDY JARVELA '62 

The Precisionettes gave their 
best performance of the year last 
Saturday at the homecoming 
game with R.I. This, along with 
the performance of the band, 
added the one bright note to the 
otherwise dreary day. 

At half-time the Precisionettes 
marched onto the field in a double 
line and took their positions. They 
briskly saluted the U.M. fans and 
then R.I. 

Then, they combined their tal- 
ents with the band to salute the 
American flag. They formed a 
shield while the band played 
"Your Land and My Land." 

Everyone joined in singing 
while the band played "When 
Twilight Shadows Deepen." Then 
the Precisionettes, together with 
the Redmen Band, marched off 
the field. 



UMass Hooters 
Lose To Trinity 

by BILL LENNON '61 

A superior and polished Trini- | 
ty team tripped the Redmen 
booters 7-1 Friday afternoon in 
Hartford. Over 500 sunbathed 
and enthusiastic fans were treat- 
ed to a hard fought and well- 
played game. 

Trinity has for years been etie 
of the best collegiate soccer 
teams in the New England area. 
Early in the game the team 
showed that this year was no 
exception as they scored five 
times in the first half while 
blanking their neighbors from 
the North. 

Two men from the Connecti- 
cut school did all the first half 
scoring. Karvazy booted two 
through the UMass defense 
while Guild, a Scotch boy, split 
the nets three times. 

Early in the third period 

Nicholas Bazos, leading scorer 

this year's eleven, booted

in the lone UMass tally. About 
twelve minutes after this well 
executed play Trinity's inside 
left, Bergh, scored his team's 
sixth goal. Within two minutes 
he completed the afternoon's 
scoring with his second goal. 

Chuck Hulett, Grant Bowman, 
and George Lust played very 
aggressively for the stalwart 
defense. The two UMass goalies, 
Arthur Worsh and Don Drink- 
water, also rose to the occasion 
as they made over 30 saves be- 
tween them. 

If the Redmen show as much 
spirit and determination to win 
as they did Friday, they should 
get back on the victory trail this 
afternoon when they Journey to

Little Redmen Trample 
Helpless Brown Team, 38-0 



by BEN GORDON '62 

The UMass frosh football 
team, undaunted by their loss to 
B.U.<'came back to trample the 
Brown University squad, 38-0, 
last Friday at Alumni Field. 

Early in the first quarter, 
after guard Tom Brophy had re- 
covered a Brown fumble, half- 
back Pete Schindler swept 
around his left end and ran 36 
yards for the first UMass tally. 

The second UMass score came 
when quarterback Al Hedlund 
hurled a 22 yard pass which 
found halfback Bill Collins on' 
the goal line. 




SPORT ALK 



The scouting report said, "Stop 
Rollings and you stop the Rams." 
We didn't and another homecom- 
ing game went down the drain. 
The horses are definitely here. 
Four lettermen man the end po- 
sitions. The first six tackles aver- 
age better than 220 pounds per 
man. The guards are big and 
hungry. 

The centers man their defensive 
linebacker posts well. At quarter- 
back we have a junior letterman 
and a sophomore who can throw 
the ball a mile. The halfbacks are 
fast and shifty, and we have two 
fullbacks who can get the short 
yardage whenever needed. 
On paper this is one of the best 



by HAL DUTTON '60 

teams this school has ever fielded. 
Yet, as we swing into the second 
half of the season the record is 
a dismal 1-4. Perhaps it is time 
for a change. 



Quarterback Al Hedlund took 
the opening kickoff of the second 
half and sprinted 79 yarda to 
paydirt. George Pleau converted. 

Then there was no holding the 
frosh. The Brown squad was 
helpless against the seemingly 
unstoppable UMass team. 

On the last play of the third 
quarter, Pete Schindler ■tam- 
pered 49 yards for the fourth 
frosh T.D. The kick by Pleau was 
good. 

Halfback Ken Kexar scored 
from the 11 early in the fourth 
quarter. Late in the game, half- 
back Mike Dineen returned a 
punt 79 yards for the sixth 
UMass tally. 

The Redmen quintet will travel 
their next game with the power- 
ful Springfield eleven, next Fri- 
day, at Springfield. 



Odds and Ends 

Hoop mentor Matt Zunic has 
his charges hard at work in prep- 
aration for the coming season. 

Captain Leo LeBlanc and high 
scoring Doug Grutchfield head the 
list of returning veterans that 
will open the season against Bates 
College in Lewiston on December 
4th. 

The Redmen quintet will travel 
to New York City for a weekend 
scrimmage with Fordham prior to 
the opener. 



Frosh X-Country 

The UMass freshman cross- 
country team swept their way to 
victory in Boston last Friday as 
they beat UConn and B.U. with 
a score of UMass 81; UConn el; 
and B.U. 58. 

The Cobbmen took over and 
placed Balch, Hasbrouck, O'Brien, 
Harrington, and Bolia. This gives 
the Frosh harriers a 8-1 record, 
losing only to a strong Mount 
Hermon team by only one point 

The Freshmen are now looking 
forward to the Harvard meet here 
today at 3:00 p.m.

Religious Council 
Opens Blood Drive 
On UMass Campus 

by ANNE MISCHE '62 

Si 

The Campus Blood Drive, spon- 
sored by the Campus Religious 
Council in conjunction with the 
faculty wives, opened last Wednes- 
day. Donations of the Drive go to 
the Hampshire County Red Cross 
Blood Bank to be put to good use. 

Students, or members of their 
families, may some day benefit by 
such donations: In case of emer- 
gency, he or a member of his 
family would automatically re- 
ceive necessary blood — without 
charge — in any hospital. In such 
a case there is no obligation to 
replace this supply, other per- 
haps, than a moral one. 

Last year, of the 341 pints of 
blood donated by the University, 
only 180 were given by students, 
while the remaining were donated 
by the faculty. 

Chairman of the Campus Blood 
Drive and President of the Cam- 
pus Religious Council, Judy Fred- 
man, makes this plea: 

"As this is the only project 
throughout the year in which the 
entire campus community par- 
ticipates, won't you please be a 
donor? Anyone over 21 may sign 
up until donation days, Nov. 3 and 
4. If you are between 18-21 and 
wish to donate, the faculty wives 
will contact your parents for per- 
mission and notify you of the time 
I when you can give blood."

total of nineteen votes is needed 
for election. 

Robert Armstrong, present 
Chairman of the Services Com- 
mittee and a member of the 
Senate for one and one-half years, 
is the Senator-at-large from the 
senior class. 

During his two terms of office, 
Armstrong has been active in the 
Christian Association, the Man- 
agement Club, Marketing Club, 
participated in both the SWAP 
and Student Leaders Conferences. 
He has also served Mills Dormi- 
tory as Athletic Chairman and as 
a member of the House Council. 

Armstrong sponsored bills in 
the Senate which rerouted and 
created a new line at the dining 
commons, suggested and char- 
tered a bus to take students to 
the Boston Pops Concert at Am- 
herst College, proposed and is 
still fighting for more phones in 
the dormitories, helped get bus 
service to Boston, and was largely 
responsible for the 30% price re- 
duction in fares. 



Index Warns Seniors 
Of Strict Pix Policy 

The traditional "Senior Section" of the INDEX will not present 
the photos of all seniors this June. According to Gretchen Pullevitz, 
Senior Editor, a large number of seniors have ignored notices estab- 
lishing "sitting times" for them by the INDEX staff and have not 
had their pictures taken. 

Because the staff will have difficulty meeting its present pub- 
lishing schedule, no further re-takes will be allowed, she added. Thus, 
those seniors who fail to keep their picture appointments or neglect 
to make prior arrangements with the Senior Editor will not have 
their pictures published in the class yearbook. 

Although thnse who missed appointments this week were allowed 
to reschedule sittings there will be no rescheduling in the future, be- 
cause of the publishing deadline, she stated. 

"The problem rests with the apathetic seniors who are not show- 
ing up for their picture sittings," Gretchen commented, "and they ar^ 
the ones who are going to lose out in the end, not the editors of the 
INDEX." 



Tonight at Westover a contingent of the Air Force Drill Team, 
the Flying Redmen, will perform at the change of command cere- 
mony honoring the new division commander. 

Present at the ceremony will be Lieutenant General Sweeney, 
Eighth Air Force Commander, and officers "dining-in". 

Cadet Major Allan Wolff will command the drill team contin- 
gent. 



Asked what he thought his 
chances for election were, Arm- 
strong stated, "I have confidence 
that the Senators will elect a per- 
son that will represent the Stu- 
dent Body. I realize that they are 
aware of the present situation 
and the fact that a change is 
needed."

PILFERED PHONOGRAPH 
PROPOGATES PROBLEMS 

Early last Friday night one of the p hono- 
frraphs was icmovti from the music room 
of the STJ and its speaker was torn from the 
wall. This was an unforgivable act on the 
pari Of some unknown person who would 
forcibly take such a valuable piece of equip- 
ment for his own use thereby possibly de- 
priving a large number of students from 
their right to use this special service. 

If it was a student, it is most unfortunate. 
It is difficult to conceive the reasons for the 
action when one considers that the phono- 
graph, when it resided in its rightful place, 
was there for the sole purpose of supplying 
any student with any type of music at any 
time. Actually, it is estimated by the secre- 
tary to the SU offices that approximately 
1200 students utilize the music facilities 
every month of the school year. 

When such a large number of students 
are concerned with the facilities, it can be 
concluded that any person destroying or re- 
moving any portion of these facilities is real- 
ly doing an injustice to the student body. 

Fortunately no one will be denied the 
privilege of using this area because the spare 
machine, normally used only in case of break- 
downs, will soon be utilized in the room in 
place of the missing one. 

Although this is the first major article 
to be removed from the Student Union, there 
haw been many small items taken in the 
past. When the building was originally 
opened, diamond tipped needles were sup- 
plied to the music room. After many of these 
had disappeared, ($7.00 each) it was found 
to be more economical to use sapphire tipped 
ones even though it meant a lessening of 
quality in the sound. 

When something is stolen from the Stu- 
dent Union, it is stolen from the students 
themselves. They are paying for everything 
in the building. It is the responsibility of 
every student to keep a close eye on his in- 
vestment by making sure that the facilities 
are not misused. D. C. 



AN EXPERIMENT 
IN INTERNATIONAL LIVING 

by RICHARD HERMAN '60 

Editor's Note: This is the second article in a series of three by Mr. 
Herman, who spent the last year flying in Denmark at the Inter- 
national Peoples College. 

With the classes organized along the lines of a Danish folkehj- 
skole and including some emphasi, on language., there was ample 
opportunity for almost all to find their field of merest and yet no 
specialize, thereby not losing the real meaning ; of the school A typical 
study schedule for the week might include: Man Through the Ages, 
The Danish Welfare State, Beligion and the Development of the 
Church, Danish, Scandinavian Literature, and the ever-absorbing study 
circle. Each student found himself with about twenty-four hours of 
classes and five hours of manual labor a week. 

The studv circle, part of the required curriculum proved to be one 
of the most interesting aspects of the college. Designed especially for 
furthering international understanding, these groups found people of 
three and four and sometimes more nationalities gathered around the 
table discussing items ranging from comparative education to socialism 
in Denmark and Scandinavia. It was here also that one could obtain 
some idea of the difficulties of international understanding as he ob- 
served the poor befuddled interpreter, holding his head in his hands 
and not knowing what language to express his emotions in It must 
be added, though, that with the help of student interpreters the teach- 
ers did a remarkable job of conducting the discussions and translating 
the many thoughts exchanged by the students. 

Along with the study circles there were numerous evening and 
afternoon talks on different lands given by people either native to a 
certain country or closely connected with it. Jordan, Ghana, Israel, 
India and Yugoslavia were discussed during the year. One of the high- 
lights of the program was the lecture series given on Russia, past and 
present, by Fru Eskil-Jonson, journalist and refugee worker. This 
forceful woman, in spite of speaking in a language which was not her 
own, gave a remarkable personal and subjective picture of that coun- 
try Having lived in Russia and still corresponding with individuals 
behind the Iron Curtain through refugee work, Fru Jonson gave a 
vivid description of the Soviet Union and a warning to the West to 
carry the ideological fight to the Russians. This woman gave us an 
invaluable opportunity to dig deeper into the real meat of the East- 
West conflict. 

The chief purpose of the school, as previously stated, was to al- 
low people from different nations to come together, thus learning to ap- 
preciate more fully the various cultures and peoples of the world. The 
school has its own garden and orchard, in fact, a small farm, where 
much is grown for school consumption. It was here that it became 
evident as the year progressed that one medium through which this 
exchange of values could be realized was through manual labor. All 
students were required to spend four to five hours a week working 
on the grounds or in the kitchen, helping the institution themselves. 
Whether we were learning a new song while doing the evening dishes, 
sweating over the stumps in the field or digging a hole for the new 
oil drum, we could always sense this feeling of unity which seemed 
to grow as we worked together. The dishes and the sore hands and 
backs were well worth this lesson in working together. 



Of course it wasn't all work and study, no one familiar with the 
warm friendly Danes could imagine this. It was on the holidays that 
we caught another glimpse of Danish and IPC life. There was the 
time we were awakened by the sound of angelic voices and the dim 
flickering of candles held by girls robed in white; this was Santa 
Lucia, a wonderful Christmas custom in Scandinavia, and a sight one 
could never forget. The following evening saw students from the sev- 
enteen nations light candles representing their countries and place 
them on the Christmas tree, before Santa came in and handed out all 
the gifts ranging from foot-long cigars to poetry. Then Festerlavn, the 
Danish Mardi Gras where the party-goers grab a large club and try 
to knock down a barrel filled with apples, paper and sticks, the win- 
ner being declared the King. All this while you are dressed up in cos- 
tume and dancing and singing into the wee hours of the morning. 
That is, when you're not eating those wonderful Danish Smorrebri.der, 
open-faced sandwiches compo ted of everything from herring to salami 
and cheese. 



OFF THE RECORDS 

by VERN PERO '63 

During the past week I heard two records which 
were greeted on all sides by pleasant (and unpleas- 
ant) requests for permission to break them into as 
many tiny pieces as the laws of physics would allow. 
On- was a catalogue of the sounds produced by dif- 
ferent portions of various sports car engines record- 
ed as the cars were alternately raced and idled. The 
other was a catalogue of the sounds emitted by two 
grand pianos, both equipped with every conceivable 
electronic modification. 

The first was recorded with one high quality 
microphone and contained descriptions of the parts 
of the engine being heard. The second was recorded 
with a total of seventeen diversified microphones, 
each of which could be moved by remote control 
from the sound booth during the recording session. 
Any attempt to describe these sounds or the instru- 
ments that made them world be completely useless. 
It must be heard to be believed. 

Since I was not especially interested in spending 
an evening listening to the sounds of high compres- 
sion engines with racing camshaft, hot spark igni- 
tion, and overhead values, I excused myself from the 
immediate area of performance with all haste, and 
consequently did not learn the name of the record. 
For that matter, I was actually rooting for the guy 
who made a lunge for the turntable in a desperate 
att; nipt to remove forever the source of torture. The 
record owner was too quick for hi nv however, and 
the net results of the ensuing struggle were two 
black eyes, two missing teeth and two minutes of 
the best infighting I have seen since last Friday 
night's T.V. boxing bouts. 

Having taken advantage of this momentary 
diversion, I quickly returned to my cell and reck- 
lessly pulled a disc off the shelf, lowered it onto the 
turntable and proceeded to make myself comfortable. 
Within the next few seconds, however, the room was 
filled with some of the most ear shattering, baffle- 
husting sounds that have ever been recorded. It was 
wonderful! I adjusted the Heathkit for full volume 
and maximum base and settled down for a quiet 
evening at home with Ferante and Teicher and 
music from their Westminster Hi Fi album entitled 
SOUNDPROOF. 

You would hardly believe that two grand pianos, 
no matter how gimmicked up they were, could make 
so many interesting and different sounds. These 
boys, it says on the record jacket, have been playing 
together for many years now, ever since they were 
youngsters. They have developed a musical sense of 
timing and precision which helps to rank them tech- 
nically among the very best. Unfortunately, until 
you have heard the record for the eighty-third time, 
the music itself lies hidden under an electronic coat- 
ing of echo chambers, pre-amps, and other more 
complicated sound distorting machinery. But just 
listening to the sounds is fun, and if you are in- 
clined toward the unusual, chances are you will play 
the record eighty-three times anyway. 

But getting back to my story, four very large 
gentlemen recklessly broke down the door to my 
room after the first three minutes of sound. They 
suggested violently that I remove this record from 
the turntable at once and never let it return. Fool- 
ishly I refused. I told them in no uncertain terms 
that the record was a hi fi masterpiece of sound 
sculpture and that I intended to listen to it at all 
costs. I even invited them to sit down and enjoy it 
with me. They answered in terms which I dare not 
repeat and a short time later they left, all smiling 
with satisfaction. I love to see people happy. 

Oh, and incidentally, does anyone want to buy a 
Heathkit amplifier which has been slightly damaged 
by a two-story drop to a concrete terrace. Or a few 
pieces of a Westminster Hi Fi recording called 
SOUNDPROOF by Ferante and Teicher? 



THE ALL-FAITH CHAPEL? 
WHY NOT? 



by JAMES MERINO '60 

As I read page two of the Collegian of October 20, I found Mr. 
Hubley's letter most interesting. There may possibly be others who 
feel as vehemently about the issue as he, but I quite frankly doubt it; 
for what is there to get so fired up about? 

Mr. Hubley sees the present Old Chapel as a "symbol of the tri- 
umph of education over superstition"; that its conversion would 
"destroy all hope for the enlightened progress of the University." In- 
deed! Apparently Mr. Hubley is one of those souls who has become 
baptised into the religion of ■'Progress", complete with the dogmas of 
"scientific" relativism and anti-revelation. 

All the more reason to convert Old Chapel into a religious cen- 
ter. For if all other buildings on campus are to be temples of the god 
"Progress", then surely we may set aside one building as a center for 
the rites of more valid religions. 



In terco llegia te 
Clippings 

From the Springfield College Student, a "Letter to 
the Editor"— 

"One unpleasant topic under discussion since the 
beginning of the year has been the long lines at the 
cafeteria. Sometimes the delays are caused by the 
food, trays, or cutlery running short, but on other 
occasions the delay is quite unconnected with the 
cafeteria itself, or the staff. 

After waiting in line for three quarters of an 
hour the other evening, I was a little disconcerted 
when, as I was about to pick up my tray, I was al- 
most thrust aside by some husky youths entering 
through the faculty dining room. All that was forth- 
coining from these "men" was a muttered 'Foot- 
ball'!"

Dear Aunt Ruthie, 

Why is it that every boy I've gone out with this year RM a girl 
back home? It's not bad enough that they have girla back home, but 
on every new date they talk mostly about her and the details of their 
romance I'm getting sick and tired of this hearts and flowers deal. 
What can I do about it ? 

A fed-up coed 

Dear Fed-up Coed, 

This is a problem of many of the girls on campus, along with 
quite a few of the guys. The rosy glow of summer romances is strong 
in the returning upper classmen, and the freshmen have inevitably 
left someone at home who they think is the "one." The only advice 
that I can give on this is to wait, summer romances usually start to 
cool with the first frost. 

Sincerely yours, 
Aunt Ruthie 

Dear Aunt Ruthie, 

Last night I went to a coffee-house on campus. There I saw a 
very nfee girl, dressed in black slacks and sweater, with long black 
hair. The guys who were with me laughed and told me she looked like 
a witch, but I thought she appeared nice. Anyhow, I'm sort of an or- 
dinary guy and don't go for all this crazy "beatnik" stuff, but she 
seemed nice and I think I'd like to meet her. But she was with a lot of 
guys with beards. How can I get to meet her? 

Signed, 
X 

Dear "X," 

Actually, from the tone of your letter, I doubt that you have very 
much in common with this "very nice girl." However, if you would

weeks now. She speaks some English but not too well. Every night

Raul or Paul, what difference does it make as long as she doesn't

THE LAND OF 



By MIKE BLUM '60 



mil 



The following is a little capsule 
review of what the jazz record 
companies, major and minor, have 
been up to lately. This week's 
column includes those labels from 
A to E; the rest, coming soon. 
The analyses include company 
aims, and a sampling of releases, 
fine and mis-directed. 

ABC Paramount— They began 
with a flourish, but jazz album 
output has slowed to a trickle. 
Amongst their best are — 

Quincy Jones — "This is How I 
Feel About Jazz" 

Osear Pettiford— "In Hi Fi. Vol- 
ume 1" 

Argo — Though Chicago-based, 
Argo has managed to record 
many top New York musicians. 



Its chief achievement however, 
has been the introduction of vir- 
tual unknowns to the public, 
Yusef Lateef— "At Cranbrook" 
good examples. Best sides- 
Max Roach with Mobley and Dor- 
ham 
Yusef Lateef— "at Cranbrook" 
Zoot Sims— "Zoot" 

Atlantic— Atlantic has always 
trier! to record the best; in terms 
of number of outstanding albums 
they seem to have succeeded, 
some very banal rhythm and blues 
and pseudo-New Orleans issues 
notwithstanding. 

"Five Sides" by the Modern Jazz 
Quartet 

"Lee Konitz with Warn* Marsh" 



Lennie TristamVs only available 

12" Ip 
Milt Jackson "Plenty Hanty Soul" 
"Ray Charles presents Fathead" 

(a real surprise) 

Bethlehem— This comptBJI DM 
released an enormous amount of 

"west coasty" jazz, some of it 
trivia and most of if played by 
non-important musicians wxlfl ap- 
preciate a chance t<> 1"' heard as 
leaders. Outstanding items — 
M I Torme and Frances Faye— 
"Porgy and Bess" 

As representative of their better 
releases by west coast lesser- 
lights, Stan Levey -'This Time 
the Drums on Me" 

Blue Note— This great pioneer 
in modern jaz recently celebrated 
its twentieth anniversary, but re- 
fuses to rest on its laurels. Own- 
er and main inspiration Alfred 
Lion maintains cons' ant exposure 
of stars while recording and de- 
veloping youngsters into later 
leaders. Horace Silver, Art Blakey 
and the late Clifford Brown can 
thank Alfred for helping them 



rise to prominence. Aside from 
these three contributors to Blue 
Notes excellent jazz catalogue are 
Bud Powell* Sonny Rollins, J. J. 
Johnson, Miles Davis, Lee Morgan 
and many significant others. 

Capital — Capital's jazz program 
is ridiculous; if they feel they 
can make a few bucks by it they 
release commercial "jazz", splurg- 
ing such as George Shearing, 
Jonah Jones, Bobby Hackett, 
Dakota Staton etc., artistic stand- 
ards being of no importance. 

Columbia — This label has the 
most worthwhile catalogue of the 
major companies, since they re- 
alize that jazz does not have to 
be w a t e red down to sell records. 
Miles Davis is an obvious case in 
point; he is both the largest seller 
in jazz and one of its most artis- 
tically satisfying. Recommended — 

"The Jazz Messengers" 

Several great Miles records, espe- 
cially "Round Midnight" 

Gigi Gryce and Don Byrd — "Jazz 
Lab"

Dave Briibi-ck — "Gone With the 
Wind" (his best!) 

Contemporary— The most con- 
sistently well -recorded and pack- 
aged records in the field come 
from Contemporary, (a Contem- 
porary record always has perfect 
sound, a beautiful jacket, inter- 
esting liner-notes and rarely poor 
music). Although this is a Cali- 
fornia independent company it 
has branched out to record such 
outstanding east-coasters as Son- 
ny Rollins, Cecil Taylor and Ben- 
ny Golson In addition to featuring 
local boys, Barney Kessel, Hamp 
Hawes, Shelly Manne, Andre Pre- 
vin, Art Pepper etc. 

Decca — Decca doesn't produce 
much jazz. Most of their small 
output has been re-issues, includ- 
ing some great Armstrong. 

Emarcy — Quality not quantity 
guides Emarcy and such* a phi- 
losophy produced some of the 
finest modern sounds ever rec- 
orded, on a series of Max Roach 
sides. Certainly there has never 
been anything to match the com- 
bination of Max, Clifford Brofwn, 
and Sonny Rollins, which may be 
heard in top form on — 

"Max and Clifford at Basin 
Street" (a classic). 

Sarah Vaughan has some good 
waxings on Emarcy

Varsity X-Countrymen Bow 
To Harvard; Freshmen Romp 



by JOE LIPCHITZ '62 

The Varsity cross-country team 
suffered their first defeat of the 
season as they bowed to Harvard 
hire yesterday by a score of 1!>- 
40. 

Harvard dominated the meet as 
I'Mass co-captain Jim Keelon and 
first place runner Ralph Husch- 
mann took stitches half way 
through the race, thus leaving the 
Footrickmcn handicapped against 
a strong Harvard team. 

The first I'Mass runner across 
the line was Diek Atkinson who 
finished second only four lecondl 
behind the winning Harvard man. 
This was all the Fcotrioknun 
eould do howfvor, as Harvard 
placed all their five men within 

the first 

The next meet for the varsity 
is the Yankee Conference Champ- 
ionships at the University of New 



Hampshire on October 31. 

The Harriers for that meet will 
be Buschmann, Atkinson, Hainer, 
Keelon, Barren, Young, Kelsey

The Frosh UMass cross-country 
team beat the Har\ard freshmen 
hew yesterday by a score of 24- 
33, with a winning time of 15:08 
minutes for the 2.9 mile course. 

Batch, II a s b r o u c k, O'Brien, 
Blomstrom and Lima were the 
five to finish for the University. 
This gives the UMass freshmen 
a record of four wins and only one 

loss. 

This was a difficult race as the 
meets have come fairly close to- 
gether leaving little time for com- 
plete rest. The next meet for the 
Freshmen however, is not until 
November 4 when they travel to 
Springfield to meet the Gymnasts

FACTS W FIGURES 

By DICK BRESCIANI '60 

The Redmen will be out to stop their four game losing streak 
Saturday when they travel to meet the Northeastern Huskies, in a 
game that could turn into quite an offensive show. 

Northeastern is winless in five outings. The Huskies have been 
bombed by New Hampshire, Springfield, AIC and West Chester, Pa. 
State Teachers, while losing an 8-6 squeaker to Rhode Island. 

UMass trails in the series between the two schools, having won 
four times while losing six. Last year, Northeastern upset the Redmen, 
12-0, but UMass captured the previous two contests in 1955 and '56. 

Rollins Named To All-East Team ' 

Hard-running John Rollins, Rhode Island halfback, was named to 
this week's All-East team as a result of his outstanding performance 
against the Redmen. Rollins gained 113 yards on 16 carries, caught 
four passes for 38 yards and intercepted one in the Rams' 30-6 win. 

Other players of local interest who made the squad include end 
Mike Long of Brandeis, tackle Lou Guzzetti of Williams and Richie 
Lucas, Penn State quarterback who starred against Boston Univ. 

The honorable mention list has end Larry Eisenhower of Boston 
College, guard Harvey Gusler of Springfield, centers Jim McCormick 
of Rhode Island and Mark Hurm of Delaware, quarterback Joe Gilbo 
of Springfield and halfback Jack Turner of Delaware. 

According to a recent survey, the average tenure of Eastern Col- 
legiate Athletic Conference head football coaches at their current in- 
stitutions is 7.5 years. The longest tenure is 27 years shared by Carl 
Davis at Cortland State and Dan Jessee at Trinity College. (U.Mass 
is a member of the E.C.A.C.) 

With varsity and freshman basketball practice under full swing, 
the hoop season will soon be coming to UMass again. New head coach 
Matt Zunic will certainly provide Redman fans with plenty of exciting 
basketball. 

The hoop schedule calls for only nine home games, with 15 on the 
road including the Springfield College Christmas tournament. In- 
cidentally, the freshman basketball team will also compete in a tourney 
at West Point.

Zelis, Armstrong Battle For Senate Presidency 



Lyle Eddy Lectures 
To Education Club 




MR. LYLE EDDY 



Mr. Lyle Eddy of the Education 
Department spoke on "John Dcv- 
ey's Impact on Education" last 
night at the first meeting of the 
Education Club, in the Common- 
wealth Room. His speech was 
divided into three parts: a bio- 
graphy of John Dewey, his basic 
philosophic ideas, and a question 
and answer period* 

Dewey spent his life writing, 
teaching, and speaking. His major 



work, Democracy in Education, 
was written in 1913. It waa trans- 
lated into 8 languages and is the 
"Bible of progressive and modern 
education." 

Mr. Eddy then discussed Dew- 
ey's theory of the "knowing pro- 
cess," which leads to the rest of 
his philosophy. He was concerned 
with the Knower and the Outside 
World: how does the mind get to 
know what is outside the mind? 
Dewey's philosophy of ethics, ends 
and means, and behavior was then 
explained. 

Mr. Eddy explained three con- 
trasts of Dewey: those of doing 
and knowing, authority and free- 
dom, and discipline and interest. 

In commenting on what Mr. 
Dewey thought were the aims of 
education, Mr. Eddy said that 
Dewey's only aim for education 
was more education; that is, 
growth and more growth. 

Mr. Eddy concluded by saying 

thut Dewey felt that what OUT 

country needed was more people 
who can subject customs, habits, 
and traditions to a thorough 
cross-examination and scrutiny 
and leaders who will do this also, 
in the hopes of arriving at a more 
usable set of customs, habits, and 
traditions.

After two hours of heated dis- 
cussion, Sen. Robert Armstrong 
and Sen. Robert Zelis were dead- 
locked 18-18 in the race for the 
Senate presidency Wednesday 
night. 

The election proceedings were 
opened by Chief Justice of Men's 
Judiciary Don Kelly '60, presiding. 
Zelis was nominated by James O'- 
Leary (Class of '62) while Arm- 
strong was nominated by Marcia 
Smith (Leach). 

Zelis, in his address, stressed 
"the need for a progressive, ex- 
perienced leader, ... not new 
blood." 

Armstrong countered that his 
aim was "to give the Student 
Senate back to the students" and 
added "the Senat« -an do no bet- 
ter than its senato and leaders." 
James O'Leary opened discus- 
sion of the candidates by outlin- 
ing Zelis' 16 points platform. 

O'Leary stressed that Zelis 
planned to '^t up a separate 
budget committee . . . work for a 
joint Senate-RSO policy . . . im- 
provement of relations with stu- 
dents . . . paid clerical assistance 
to straighten out Senate files . . . 
more Vice Pres.deiithil control of 
the committees . . . compromise 
worked out between the Band and 
the administration . . . broader 
relationships with the Faculty 
Senate . . . more students on fa- 
culty committees.. .a State 
House — University day . . . im- 
provement of Summer School pro- 
gram and activities . . . and a 
policy of peaceful 'co-existence' 
with the Collegian . . ." 

Marcia Smith, in her nomina- 
tion speech for Bob Armstrong, 
stressed his accomplishments as 
Chairman of the Services Com- 
mittee, such as "rerouting the 
Commons lines . . . conducting 
telephone surveys . . . discount 
rates in the Peter Pan Bus serv- 
ice .. . and free bus service to 
Amherst." Citing his responsibili- 
ty for lifting the prestige of the 
Senate, his services to the stu- 
dent body, his channels in South 
College, Miss Smith said "Arm- 
strong is a man who gets things 
done because he is a good organ- 
izer." Miss Smith reiterated Arm- 
strong's platform, which in addi- 
tion to putting the student into 
the Student Senate, will estab- 
lish a budget committee . . . bi-

DON CROTEAU '61 
"Armstrong msy not be as 
creative as Zelis but he gets 
things done." 




ROBERT ARMSTRONG and ROBERT ZELIS — Rivals for Sen- 
nate President watch television during the election. 



monthly reports from recipients 
of Senate allocated funds . . . 
posting proposed motions so Sena- 
tors "won't go in cold . . . raise 
prestige of the Senate . . . and 
instruction of parliamentary pro- 
cedure." 

Dennis Twohig, (Married Stu- 
dents), vice-president of the 
Senate, speaking in support of 
Zelis, said he was impressed by 
what he had seen of Zelis in 
action on the Senate floor and is 
convinced that "he is the man to 
do the job." Twohig pointed out 
that Zelis sponsored motions 
which established intra-mural de- 
bating, an optional meal plan, a 
policy of channeling money from 
vending machines into scholar- 
ships, and abolishing scholarships 
for Collegian editors. He brought 
out an analogy between the elec- 
tion and the Keough-Donovan 
election of two years ago. In that 
election, Twohig stated "Richard 
Keough was defeated because he 
had stepped on too many toes." 
Twohig urged Senate members 
"not to let this happen to Zelis." 
Twohig said this election all boils 
down to one question; "Has Bob 
Zelis gotten too big for his 
britches?" 

Bill Knowlton, secretary of the 
Senate, stepped down from the 
platform and pointed out that it 
was Bob Zelis who had been in 
touch with the Peter Pan Bus 
Company all summer. Knowlton 
added that Zelis had experience in 
dealing with the administration. 
"A year's experience," he said, "is 
something to take advantage of." 
Dave Mraz '61 countered that 
Armstrong had made "working 



contacts" with the head of the 
Dining Commons, head of the 
Building and Grounds Depart- 
ment, President Mather, and other 
prominent administrators. 

Don Croteau, in support of 
Armstrong, denounced Zelis's rec- 
ent actions of "criticising the Col- 
legian from the rostrum." He 
added that it "seems as if Bob 
Zelis is too po-wcrfu? he gets his 
hand into everything." "Is this a 
good thing?," Croteau (Com- 
muters) asked. 

Croteau admitted that "Arm- 
strong may not be as creative as 
Zelis," but stipulated that "he 
gets things done." 

O'Leary, speaking for the sec- 
ond time, said "Zelis has done 
more for the Senate than anyone 
I know. In fact, he was in Boston 
this summer fighting for the 
teachers' pay raise." 

Jack Knight (Fraternities) de- 
scribed Zelis as "the coach, the 
water boy, the whole team." He 
added "How can you argue that 
Armstrong is not experienced? 
Bob Armstrong has always main- 
tained the highest ideals — he is a 
leader." 

In conclusion Ted Sheerin 
(Commuters) said that "My heart 
tells me to vote for Armstrong, 
but my head makes me vote for 
Zelis. Whether or not you like 
Zelis you have to respect his 
ability. Too much leadership is 
better than too little." 

At this time, 10:60 p.m. the 
Senate voted overwhelmingly to 
adjourn.

DARK HORSE? 

Wednesday night's presidential deadlock 
has brought up some interesting points. 

The Senate officially has no officers until 
the new slate is elected. When Bob Zelis 
handed the gavel to Don Kelly, the terms of 
all the officers ended. 

Even more interesting are the problems 
ol future officers. If Zelis is defeated, he 
won't run. for another office or even take a 
committee chairmanship. If Armstrong is 
defeated, Dennis Twohig is a "shoe-in" for 
the vice-presidency. Where will that leave 
Armstrong? 

Twohig said at the election that "It is a 
question of whether or not Bob Zelis has 
gotten too big for his britches." Twohig ad- 
mitted that he didn't know the answer. 

Twohig, when nominated for the presi- 
dency, by Robert Fishel, declined by saying 
that he "wasn't qualified." Whether or not 
he is qualified* the fact remains that he has 
been the vice-president of the Senate since 
Hay 16. In any event, Twohig is a strong pos- 
sibility as a dark horse candidate in the 
event that the Srnato cannot reach a decision 
novt Wednesday night. 

A number of people are curious as to how 
the vote would have come out if there was 
one taken immediately before adjournment. 
Janet Parker (Mary Lyon), the Senator who 
came into the meeting a little after 10:30 
p m.. would have been the deciding vote if 
she had had a chance to cast her ballot. How- 
ever, a number of senators feel that Sheerin's 
speech for Zelis was effective enough to in- 
fluence some of the freshman Senators to 
vole for Zelis. 

What happens next week will be most in- 
teresting. It certainly is a comfort to know- 
that Hon Kelly, Chief Justice of Men's 
Judiciary, will '»»> back again to continue to 
do an cm silent job of refereeing this political 
f] cv-for-all. — !>■ H. R.

HELLER LECTURES 
ON NIETZSCHE 

by PAT WOOD '62 

Last Wednesday Peter Heller of the Cerman Department lectured 
on Nietzsche for the second in a series OS Existentialism presented 
by the Hillel Foundation. As an excellent example of the fact that 
education and religion are not foes but are cohorts in the search for 
truth, Heller delved into the heart and soul of Nietzsche. 

Nietzsche asked all pervading 
questions with his total being, 
Combining analytical intellect and 
heart. The 'wandering fugitive' 
rejected Christianity and sought 
to re-establish pagan worship of 
the earth with its Dionysian 
qualities. It almost seemed that 
was not so much the disbe- 
lieve? as the rebel. With his in- 
sistent cry that "God is dead", 
iving the earth in darkness and 
chaos to be resurrected by 'super- 
man'. 
Peter Heller 
As a prophet with a clear knowledge of the future and the in- 
ability to do anything, Nietzsche has as his source of authority the 
sanction of the irrevocability of personal taste. His fanatic preachings 
of creation and destruction in eternal cycles revealed his insanity 
which brought on his inevitable doom and hurt no one hut himself. 




AN EXPERIMENT 
IN INTERNATIONAL LIVING 

by RICHARD P. HERMAN '60 

Language Barrier Problems 

Editor a Note: Thin is the third in a series about the International 
Peoples College in Denmark. 

As always, difficulties accompanied the pleasures, and set-backs 
followed right on the tail of successes in the schooi. One of the chief 
problems to be overcome was the language barrier. Aside from mak- 
ing it difficult to communicate thoughts, this barrier had the tendency 
of creating groups which didn't add to the unity of the school. How- 
ever, most of the international students in the college attempted to 
learn Danish thus helping to somewhat alleviate the problem through 
a feeling of group progress in Laming to speak "with potatoes in 
your mouth." It was often frustrating to the Danes as well as the 
foreign students; each wanted to speak in the other's native tongue. 
The usual compromise was, "You speak to me in my language, I'll 
Speak to you in yours and we'll be mutually unintelligible." 

Lessons in Government 

Along with studies, discussions and parties, the school had to be 
run as a living, organizational unit The principal, Vagn Eenger, be- 
lieved in democracy and a real indent government. In the beginning 
the school found itself with the task of electing a student council to 
run the college. Here was a real lesson in working together interna- 
tionally Starting from scratch \s tough when the group speaks the 
same language and has bnsiralh the same organizational and educa- 
tional background. The task appeared monumental when viewed from 
our little international scene. 

When the attempt was made to amend the existing constitution 
the results led most of us to believe that before any real progress 
was to he made, it would he m •• . -sary to have the interpreting facili- 
ties of the C.N. on hand. It became apparent, actually and practically, 
that many of the freedoms and rights which we enjoy and take for 
granted as Americans are still being fought for in Europe. 

As the year prog r e ss ed, H wrai very rewarding to see that the ar- 
gument, misunderstandings and difficulties which arose actually led 
to a deeper understanding Of the problems to be faced and dealt with 
by the coming generations, Educationally speaking, our failure to 
innate ■ smooth ranning machine was more valuable to us than a year 
spent passing international bouquets back and forth. 

A Most Vsl liable Lesson 

Trying to recall five months is difficult under any circumstances 
and almost impossible under those at International Peoples College. 
The hours merge into days and the days into months, all finally cul- 
minating with the final helpless feeling one has when he reali7.es that 
he will mole than likely never again see some of the close friends 
that he has come to know §q well. 

Many of the opportunities' to benefit from the experience were 
not taken and much was lacking at the school. It will suffice to re- 
peat, the srordl of our African student from Ghana, who upon leaving 
the school expressed his feelings s«> aptly: "I am sure that if I spent 
two years poring oVCl all the volumes of books and papers I could 
lay my hands on, that I could not receive the value of my stay here 
at the college." Seconding Boadi'i observation I can but add my own 
appreciation at having been able to enjoy such an experience and my 
own regret that this same valuable lesson in international living can 
only be passed on to such a small number each year. More than 
theories, policies or philosophies, the school gives to one the real un- 
derstanding of living and learning internationally. 



LETTERS 

Replies To Hubley 

'respect for religion' 

Dear Mr. Hubley, 

in reply to the somewhat ignorant statement 
made by you in the October 20 issue of the Colleginn\ 
myself, as well as many others would like to take 
this opportunity to more or less strike back. 

My dear Bonis, after three years of higher edu- 
cation if by this time you have not learned the true 
ideals and beliefs of Americanism and democracy you 
had better quit now for your own good. In America, 
In case you didn't know, one of the basic ideas of 
democracy Is freedom and harmony of the different 
sects of religion in our country. As for myself I can 
think of no better way to get along with those 
around us than by respecting each other's religious 
beliefs. Some day sir, maybe you will have the un- 
fortunate opportunity of finding yourself living un- 
der Communist domination which disregards any 
religious rite. Cod forbid that this day shall ever 
come to us, but nevertheless it is a constant threat. 
I am sure then you will feel quite differently to- 
wards your views. 

As for the statement made by you in paragraph 
two "It is enough to have their 'High Priests' in 
the Student Union". I think you should have thought 
before making this statement. There are some peo- 
ple on this campus who find it quite annoying to 
hear men of God being referred to in a sarcastic 
manner. These men are here to help education, not 
to hinder it. I'm sure by your foolish manner of ex- 
pressing your views, you have made yourself none 
too popular on the UMass campus. 

William K. Patrick Cronin T,l 



'frustrated pedagogue' 

Dear Mr. Hubley: 

The opinion you expressed in October 20's Col- 
tenia)! is utterly revolting and entirely selfish! 

You remind me of a frustrated pedagogue whose 
only aim is to I ram the student's minds with facts 
and figures heedless of the fact that the mind must 
be disciplined in other areas in order that the stu- 
dent be well-adjusted. 

If you are a part of that so-called "enlightened 
progress". I'll have none of it. Education, by your

Reply To Merino 

To the Editor: 

That Mr. Merino found Mr. Hubley's letter of 
Oct. 20, 1959, opprobr iou s can be deduced from the 
subterfuge to which he resorted in dismissing Mr. 
Hubley's cause. The basis of Mr. Merino's sophistry 
lay in his vacuously satirical dramatization of Mr. 
Hubley's anti-religion. The major point of Mr. Hub 
ley's letter was thus "effectively" glossed over. 

May I point out that traditionally this country, 
which ceded this campus to the state of Massachu- 
setts, has upheld the doctrine of the separation of 
church and state. This permits what is, perhaps, the 
most democratic and equitable policy in the United 
States today Freedom of religion Combine the two 
and one rightly observes that even a minority need 
not be suhjoet to supporting any religious group or 
groups. 

Using OW Chapel as a tri-religious center will be 
definitely an infringement upon a national right and 
tradition, not only by forcing anti-religionists, 
atheists and agnostics amongst the student body to 
act hypocritically, but also by diverting the money 
winch our forebears appropriated for education into 
an overt \iolation of our national constitution.

Hail The Juke Box 

To the Editor: 

Concerning the recent furor over the juke box 
III the Hatch: has anyone ever stopped to consider 
what a technological marvel the juke box is? The 
very fact that it does drive certain parties to dis- 
traction by playing crudely-made rock and roll rec- 
ords from 12 noon to 10 P.M.. day in and day out, 
is not only proof of the unoxalted IQ's of the lis- 
teners but more important, of the skillful engineer- 
ing that is contained within its construction. 

An appreciation of the high technical achievement 
displayed by this instrument, I feel, is entirely lack- 
ing on the part of both the dissenters and listeners 
of [ts Innocuous emissions. 

"Out of Order" signs have, perchance, fallen on 
a multitude of hapless items in the Union, not ex- 
cluding toilets, hut yet has the day to come when one 
sees "Out of Order" hanging over the Hatch juke 
box! 

Sincerely yours, 
Robert Chilsa

The Campus Beat 

by JERRY GALLA6HBB 

With no more goofing around, we've got to find a new president. 
With this in mind we began to interview applicants. The fust man con- 
t rted was Leo Duroeher. 
Question: Leo, what would your first official move be as president? 

Leo: Well, Lindsey, I'd bunt. 

Question: Why do you want the job? 

Ijeo: This is my kind of a campus. I'll show Frank Lane. If I can't be 
manager of the year, I'll be president of the year. 

Next interviewed was Dean Martin. 
Question: What would your first move as president be? 
Dean: End that prohibition jazz. 
Question: How would you solve the dining problem? 
Dean: Serve booze in class. The cats would be too grogged to eat. Me 
and Frank will have a ball here. 

Charles Van Doren responded to his first move: 
Charles: I'd rather not say until after Nov. 2, but could you give me 

a hint? 
Question: How would you solve the cribbing problem? 
Charles: I can't stand cheaters. I'd bring them before the judiciary 
immediately. 

Also interviewed were: Johnny Orlando, Lucky Luciano, William 
Burkhart, Boogie Bear, Carmen Basilio, Elsa Maxwell, Allen Young, 
Commander Whitehead, Lassie, Sam Huff and Bert Piel, but comments 
are not available.

Once again Arnold won honors

to make the effort a success. 

A coffee hour was held on Octo-

from the freshmen attending we 
understand that his topic on

CHI OMEGA 

The Chi O's are still going like 
a house afire after a great Home- 
coming Weekend. They certainly 
had a "bucket" of fun in that 
float parade Friday night and I 
understand numerous trips were 
made to the men's cage before 
the show got on the road. Did 
everyone get warm or accom- 
plish her desired missions, gals? 
Chief Penelope Renton did a 
fine job with the siren and real- 
ly got the feel of the whole role. 
Did anyone ever save night- 
capped Elaine Hurney or Pat 
Oliviera? Carolyn Walsh and 
Peg Doherty tried real hard to 
put out that fire, but they got 
more water on themselves and 
the spectators than on the Chi O 
house. Oh well, nice try! 

The next morning, after the 
night before, the house served a 
delicious luncheon (after the

CINEMA 



by Pat O'Connell 9 61 

Mother's Club meeting). Many 
other guests were present and it 
was especially great to see the 
"alums" w*ho had much to reveal. 
After the football game, Chi O 
and KKG collaborated on an open 
house which wau a booming suc- 
cess according to those who at- 
tended. However, it seems that 
some people missed this chance to 
see our new interior for they're 
still coming around at night to 
PEEK in. When the new drapes 
arrive this privilege will be no 
more — oh night visitors! 

Congratulations are in order 
for Gini Boire who has been 
chosen as one of the leads in this 
year's Campus Varieties. 

Another event to be celebrated 
this October occurred on the fifth 
—it was Chi Omega's Elusinian 
celebration. This date marks our 
"half-birthday", for our Found- 
er's Day is on April fifth. Happy 
half birthday greetings were ex- 
tended to the wearers of the 
cardinal and straw that night at 
dinner. 

This Wednesday night the Chi 
O's and the Alpha Sig's almost 
had an exchange supper which

GAMMA CHI ALPHA 

Sunday, October 25, at 7:00 P.M. 
in the Colonial Lounge seventeen 
pledges will be initiated. 

The Gamma Chi's are sure 
everyone agrees with them in 
their opinion of the float parade — 
"terrific!" — Congratulations to all 
the winners — you really did a 
great job. 

Linda Frissel and Judy Konop-

A new "king" of Gamma Chi 

Alpha was crowned after the float 
parade; Dave Mteroft, senior 
Stockbridge student, received a 
big vote of thanks from the sis- 
ters for all the help he gave on 
the float. 

On Saturday, November 21, 
Gamma Chi Alpha and Sigma Phi 
Epsilon will hold a Splash Party 
at the Women's Physical Educa- 
tion Building. This will probably 
be the only "wet" party on cam- 
pus this year! 

KAPPA ALPHA THETA 

The Theta's were proud of their 
prize winning float in the parade 
Friday night. "It's Off To Win

theme, came in third in the soror- 
ity division. 

Wednesday evening Theta had 
an exchange supper with Phi Sig- 
ma Kappa, which we all enjoyed.

the refreshments. The Kappa's 
were all glad to see their Alum- 
nae again. 

Congratulations to all the win-

excellent job on KKG's float and

PI BETA PHI 

This year's Homecoming Week- 
end certainly proved to be an ex- 
citing one for all the Pi Phi's. 
Many of their "alums" came back 
to their Alma Mater and it was 
fun hearing about their careers. 
Evie Burhoe was back, briefing 
us on her glamorous career as an 
airline hostess with West-Orient 
Airlines. Louise Shea and Irene 
Kowalzyk blinded us all with their 
sparkling diamonds. Some of the 
older "alums" were surprised at 
our expanded campus — all were 
glad to be back visiting UMass. 

Congratulations to the float 
parade winners! Homecoming 
proved to be an extra special 
weekend for two of our Pi Phi's, 
Lanie Farr and Bev Rodiman. 
Lanie was pinned, Friday night, 
to Don Brown (TKE), and Bev is 
now wearing Grant Bowman's Sig 
Ep pin. Congratulations and Best 
Wishes! 

Monday night seven pledges, 
Joanna Albertini, Diann Coyle,

this past Wednesday during the

likewise ir» the "dessert party" 
with SDT on Thursday. The 
"Flyers" continue to roll on vic- 
torious in the IFC football league 
and now stand 4-0 after their 
recent conquest of QTV. 51-0. We 
expect as much participation and 
cooperation in the TFC Skit and 
Sing as we had for the float 
parade.

Now that Homecoming Week- 
end is over, we have resumed 
practice on both the Skit and 
Sing for the IFC competition. On 
the sports scene, our football 
team won its third straight last 
week, beating AEPi, 25-6. We 
are looking ahead to our "Sadie 
Hawkins Day", a week from 
Saturday, a date to remember. 

TEP 

A large Alumni turnout en- 
loyed one of the most successful 
Homecoming Weekends in TEP's 
history. Our beautifully refur- 
nished house made a fine setting 
for a wonderful time. Sports- 
wise, TEP bounced back from 
iast game's defeat to down Alpha 
Sig, 20-13. 

TKE 

This past Homecoming Week- 
end, one of the best in many 
years, proved very delightful to 
the Tekes as we welcomed back 
many old faces of the past years. 
The weekend provided the Alum- 
ni with the New Orleans Jazz 
Doctors Saturday night and a 
breakfast Sunday morning. On 
the sports scene, the Tekes have 
now won their last two games 
and we are hoping to fare as well 
in the Sing as we are in football.

CHI OMEGA 



The Chi O's are still going like 
a house afire after a great Home- 
coming Weekend. They certainly 
had a "bucket" of fun in that 
float parade Friday night and I 
understand numerous trips were 
made to the men's cage before 
the show got on the road. Did 
everyone get warm or accom- 
plish her desired missions, gals? 
I liief Penelope Renton did a 
fine job with the siren and real- 
ly got the feel of the whole role. 
Did anyone ever save night- 
capped Elaine Hurney or Pat 
Oliviera? Carolyn Walsh and 
Peg Doherty tried real hard to 
put out that fire, but they got 
more water on themselves and 
the spectators than on the Chi 
house. Oh well, nice try! 

The next morning, after the 
night before, the house served a 
delicious luncheon (after the 



by Pat O'Connell '61 

Mother's Club meeting). Many 
other guests were present and it 
was especially great to see the 
"alums" who had much to reveal. 
After the football game, Chi O 
and KKG collaborated on an open 
house which was a booming suc- 
cess according to those who at- 
tended. However, it seems that 
some people missed this chance to 
see our new interior for they're 
still coming around at night to 
PEEK in. When the new drapes 
arrive this privilege will be no 
more — oh night visitors!

This year's Homecoming Week-

Many of their "alums" came back 
to their Alma Mater and it was

Evie Burhoe was back, briefing 
us on her glamorous career as an

sparkling diamonds. Some of the 
older "alums" were surprised at

Friday night, after the float 
parade, the brothers began Home- 
coming Weekend with a casual 
party with PSD. Saturday like- 
wise proved successful with a 
buffet supper and a dance after- 
wards. All members of the house 
are confident of getting back in- 
to the win column this week after 
our last two losses in the IFC

planning a Hallow n laity at

PSD 

Our Saturday nitwit party this 
past Alumni Weekend was the 
best on record with the singing of 
the "Four Sins" highlighting the 
affair. After the float parade 
Friday night we were guests at 
Alpha Gamm for a party and we 
returned the favor Sunday after- 
noon with an open house. Our 
hayride with AGR this Saturday 
promises to be another great suc- 
cess.

After a great Homecoming 



Weekend the Phi Sig 8 are look- 
ing forward to repeating them- 
selves this weekend. On Satur-

REDMEN HASSLE WITH N.U. HUSKIES TOMORROW 



by V1N BASILE 

Charlie O'Rourke's Redmen will 
begin the second half of their 
90 far unsuccessful grid season to- 
morrow when they face off 
against the Northeastern Huskies 
at Boston. Kickoff time is sched- 
uled for 1:30. 

The Redmen will be trying to 
get, back on the winning trail, 
after dropping four straight since 
their victory upset over Maine in 
the season opener. 

The Huskies also will be try- 
ing desperately to win, having 
been winless in their last five 
starts. The Huskies were edged 
8-6 by Rhode Island, the same 
Ram team that beat UMass 30-6 
last Saturday. They also lost to 
New Hampshire. Springfield, AIC, 
and West Chester Teachers. 

Northeastern also has defen- 
sive problems and Saturday's 
meeting could develop into a 
strictly offensive battle. 

Tomorrow's encounter will be 
the eleventh meeting of these two 
clubs. Northeastern has a 6-4 
edge in the series. The Huskies 
blanked the Redmen last year 
12-0, at Alumni Field, but UMass 
won the '55 and '56 contests. 

O'Rourke will probably go 
along with the same lineup as last 
week which saw Swepson and 
Forbush at ends, Thornton and 
Riley in the tackle slots, and Vin 
Caputo in the center's position. 



'62, Sports Editor 

It is rumored that there will be 
a change at one of the guard 
3lots. Last week right guard Jerry 
Cullen was benched in favor of 
sophomore John Kozaka, while 
Ben Fernandez stayed at left 
guard. Just who will sit out the 
opening minutes is not definite. 

The backfield will have Hoss at 
fullback, Conway at quarterback 
and Benvenuti and Reynolds at 
the halfback spots. Also, halfback 
Tom Delnickas is expected to re- 
turn to the gridiron wars tomor- 
row. Delnickas suffered a dis- 
located elbow three weeks ago in 
the Delaware game. 

OFF THE RECORD 

The Redmen, having played five 
teams, now have only four games 
remaining. 

In order to have a better than 
.500 season, they will have to win 
their remaining ball games. With 
the possible exception of Boston 
University, this is not as hard to 
do as it may appear. However, 
the Redmen will have to get hold 
of themselves and play the type 
of ball they are capable of play- 
ing. 

The Yankee Conference crown 
may have been lost, but let's at 
least try for a winning season. 
At that it will be the first suc- 
cessful season since 1952, which 
saw the Redmen win four games 
as against three losses. 




Sophomore JOHN GAZOURIAN is one of the surprises of last 
spring who looks like one of the finest fullbacks to come along dur- 
ing the O'Rourke regime. He is a fast and powerful runner. 



SPORTALK 



by HAL DUTTON '60 



The Redmen travel to Brookline 
tomorrow bent oh breaking a four- 
game losing streak. If we are to 
salvage anything whatsoever out 
of the present campaign a vic- 
tory is a necessity. 

Northeastern has hit the skids, 
after posting a fine 6-2 record 
last year. They have dropped five 
straight games. 

Coach Joe Zabilski has two ex- 
perienced quarterbacks in Jim 
Hennessey and Tom Flaherty. 
Halfback Johnny McGonagle is 
the man to watch. The shifty 165- 
pounder has averaged better than 
five yards per carry the past two 

Odda and Ends 
The most talked about basket- 
ball player in the history of the 
game will be unveiled as an NBA 
performer this Saturday when the 
Philadelphia Warriors meet the 
New York Knicks in Madison 
Square Garden. Wilt Chamberlin. 
the 7-2 product of the Philadel- 



phia school system, Kansas Uni- 
versity, arid the Harlem Globe- 
trotters, will play his first game. 

Warrior owner Eddie Gottlieb 
has waited a long time for this 
day. He manipulated the draft 
system and secured the rights to 
"The Big Dipper" before he had 
even graduated from high school.

Booters Beat WPI 

by BILL LENNON '61 

Wednesday in Worcester an ag- 
gressive UMass soccer team 
edged WPI by the score of 1-0. 
After the first period score the 
two scrappy teams treated a 
good-sized crowd to a very ex- 
citing game. 

After twelve minutes had 
elapsed in the first period, Nick 
Bazos booted in the game's lone 
score from his right wing posi- 
tion. 

During the remainder of the 
glOM both teams constantly failed 
to capitalize on scoring oppor- 
tunities. This failure was many 
times due to the very fine work 
of the two goalies, especially 
Charles Correia of the Redmen. 

Saturday the spirited soccer- 
men will invade Springfield to 
tangle with the Maroons of 
Springfield College. The Spring- 
field eleven has compiled a for- 
midable record of 4-1, their only 
loss coming at the hands of Yale 
by a single point.

UMass won a football game 
this year. Those of you who have 
seen them since that first game 
may find this hard to believe, I 
know, but the records say we beat 
Maine 21 16. 

Granted, the Kedmen played out 
of their class when they took on 
Harvard and Delaware, hut U- 
Conn and surely Rhode Island 
should have succumbed to Mr. 
O'Rourke s boys. 

In both of these Yankee Con- 
ference games the Redmen have 
played well for one half. Unfor- 
tunately, football games are 
played in two halves. 

Against UConn the Redmen 
outplayed ihe Huskies throughout 
the first two periods even though 
the men from Storrs held a 6-0 
lead. The second half saw our 
boys completely collapse. UConn 
ran up three more scores and won 
26-0. 

Last Saturday's homecoming 
fiasco was the same story. The 
Redmen played well in the first 
half, holding Rhodie to six points 
while they managed the same 
amount. In the final two periods, 
however, the underdog Rams 
turned the "contest" into a route, 
narching to a 30-6 win. 

In both these gameB it was the 
same old story — the team died. 

Why? Is it because lack of 
depth wore them out? We doubt 
it. Not, at least, with ten lettered 



linemeu 
backs. 



and six experienced 



Is it because the players in- 
stinctively do not want to win ? We 
doubt this also. One has only to 
look back at the Frosh team of 
two years ago, the team from 
which the varsity has drawn most 
of its material. That squad won 
three and lost only one to a pow- 
erful BU team. The '57 Little 
Redmen had the desire to win, and 
showed it continually on the field. 

What happened to this desire 
to win? How was it knocked out 
of them as soon as they became 
varsity players? We think there 
can be only one answer — the 
coach ! 

Football players don't just give 
up wanting to win. They either 
are instilled with a defeatist at- 
titude or they develop an aversion 
for the coach which prevents them 
from giving their best. In either 
case the fault lies in the same 
spot, with the coach. 

Our Mr. O'Rourke seems to 
have a tremendous faculty for 
producing losing teams. Since he 
took over as head coach in 1952 
he has had one winning season, 
his first. He has broken even 
twice. Since '56 he has won 6, lost 
20, and tied 2. Even a school 
which has de-emphasized football 
— maybe that's what we've done 
—would be disappointed in this 
record. 

Granted, in some of these sea- 
sons, Mr. O'Rourke has not had 
the horses to work with, but can 
he fall back on that excuse this 
year? We don't think go. 

The Redmen have four more 
games this year — weak North- 



eastern, weaker Brandeis, sur- 
prising New Hampshire, and 
strong BU. Unless we win three 
and put up a good showing 
against BU, perhaps it would be 
best if Mr. O'Rourke were asked 
to look for a new job. 

And the three wins must be 
convincing! 



Sports Note 

There will be no sports ac- 
tivity on campus tomorrow. 
The football and soccer teams 
are playing away games, and 
the cross country teams are 
not scheduled.

Collegian Marks Eighty-Ninth Anniversary 



Paper 



Grows From Town 
Weekly Column To Current 
>us-wide Publication 



Campi 



by MARILYN ARMSTRONG '60 



Today marks the eighty-ninth 
anniversary of our student news- 
paper. 

On Oct. 26, 1870 a 4-column 
spread appeared across half the 
first page of the town weekly, 
the Amherst Record. Under the 
headline: Massachusetts Agricul- 
tural College Department was 
the caption in black type: 
CONDUCTED BY 
THE SENIOR CLASS 
The editors included William 
H. Bowker, for whom Bowker 
Auditorium was named, and L. 
B. Caswell, who later wrote a 
history of the college. These men 
were members of our first grad- 
uating class. 

This arrangement of a student- 
edited section in the town weekly 
lasted only until July, 1871. So 
far as is known, for the next 
nineteen years the college had no 
form of student publication ex- 
cept the INDEX. 

On Oct. 1, 1890, however, the 
first edition of Aggie Life ap- 
peared. This was published fort- 
nightly in the form of a 16-page 
magazine, 8 by 10 inches in size. 
Some of the problems of college 
journalism in those days are re- 
flected in the following an- 
nouncement in Aggie Life of Oct. 
18, 1893: 

"Smith College, after years* of 
hard endeavor, has at last been 
granted by the Faculty, permis- 
sion to publish a paper to repre- 
sent the institution. We wish 
them success, but are skeptical 
as to the chance of the paper 
flourishing under the Faculty 
restrictions, which appear as 
numerous as the sands of the 
seashore." 

In 1901, because of student 
objections to the word "Aggie", 
and because of student wishes 
for more news, Aggie Life was 
re-named the College Signal 



and appeared in newspaper form. 
In 1914 the name was again 
changed to The Masmrhnsetts 
Collegian, 

Story of Progress 
Since then, the Colhaiaii has 
never stopped growing. It was 
changed from a weekly to a 
semi-weekly in March of 1951. 
a few months after it had ac- 
quired a student-faculty Pub- 
lishing Board to provide contin- 
uity services. 

On Oct. 8, 1956, the first tri- 
weekly Collegian appeared — the 
newspaper we know today. The 
story of this development is told 
in a column in this issue that 
was written by Sam Kaplan '57, 
who designed the present make- 
up, and who subsequently be- 
came a professional newspaper- 
man, as have many Collegian 
editors. 

Uncensored Paper 
Throughout its history, so far 
as is known, the Collegian has 
been an uncensored newspaper. 
Tt has served as a campus sound- 
ing board and as a central source 
of communications. 

The following is a condensa- 
tion of key dates in the Colle- 
gian's history compiled by Abby 
Murray '60. 

Oct. 26, 1870 — Senior Class 
established a 4-column depart- 
ment in the town weekly, the Am- 
herst Reeord. Editors included W. 
H. Bowker. '71. 

1871-1890 — No student-edited 
publication pxcept the Index. 

Oct. 1, 1890— Aggie Life, a stu- 
dent-edited fortniphtly magazine 
appeared, independent of student 
taxes but with editors elected by 
the student hody, and each class 
having a quota of editors.

Mather Names Distinguished Physcians, 
Educators For New Infirmary Planning 



Amherst. Oct. 21 A group of 
prominent physicians and educa- 
tors has been named as Board of 
Visitors to discuss planning of a 
new University of Massachusetts 
infirmary, it wa, announced to- 
day by Pres. Jean Paul Mather. 
Construction plans for the ex- 
panded University facility have 
been approved, and actual build- 
ing will begin in the spring. 

The new Board, which *rew out 
of consultations between Univer- 
sity officials and Dr. Dana Farns- 
worth. Director of Health Serv- 
ices at Harvard, will hold an or- 
ganizational meeting on Thursday 
of next week (Oct. 29) on the 
University campus. Later discus- 
sions will consider policies and 
procedures to be instituted when 
the 80-bed infirmary is completed 
towards the end of next year. 

According to Robert S. Hop- 
kins, Jr., dean of men at the Uni- 
versity and secretary of the new 
Board, the panel will give ''sound 
and impartial professional advice 
in staffing the University Health 
Service properly and in develop- 
ing policies for its operation." 
Increasing enrollment at the 



University has made expanded 
facilities necessary, the Dean 
said. He noted that the present 
24-bed infirmary was erected as a 
barn in 1886 and, though re- 
modeled in 1934. is totally inade- 
quate for the current enrollment 
of approximately 6000 students. 
Last year the Health Service han- 
dled a total of 11,388 outpatient 
visits and 573 bed patients. Also 
.student patients used present in- 
firmary facilities for a total of 
1417 hospital days. 

The Board, established as a con- 
tinuing body, will oversee all 
Health Service activities once the 
new infirmary is completed. These 
include student services and treat- 
ment, improvements in physical 
layout, development of emergency 
plans in the event of epidemics, 
and other related matters. 

Board members will make an 
immediate study of national sta- 
tistics having to do with the staff- 
ing and maintaining of college 
hospital units in order to initiate 
the most efficient policies possible 
for the University facility. 

Members of the new Board, 
which includes seven alumni, are:

Hopkins Describes Disciplinary 
Action Taken Against Frosh Men 



by SONJA LANGWA '61 

Robert S. Hopkins, Chairman tactics 
of the University Discipline 
Board, has announced that two 
Freshmen have recently been se- 
verely censured by Men's Judi- 
ciary for having gone to a local 
"Dispensing Parlor" on a Sun- 
day night, and for their actions 
upon their return. 

One of the 18-year-olds was 
held overnight in the rooming 
house maintained by the town 
police, while the other eluded the 
police by certain diversionary 



NOMINATION PAPERS 

Nomination papers for Sena- 
tor-at-largc, Class of '61, can 
be obtained at the Dean of 
Men's office. They must be re- 
turned by 4:30 Wednesday, Oc- 
tober 2K; elections win be held 
in the i^V lobby from 12-C 
p.m. Thursday. 



"Letters to the parents of each 
have been sent explaining the in- 
cident and each student has been 
warned that a recurrence makes 
him liable to very severe punish- 
ment." stated Hopkins. 

Two students, a freshman and 
a junior, have been placed on 
disciplinary probation and have 
received failures in their respect- 
ive courses, one for plagiarizing 
and one for direct cheating. 

Disciplinary probation as a re- 
sult of academic dishonesty bars 
a student from holding office in 
any recognized student organiza- 
tion, representing the University 
on or off campus, actively par- 
ticipating in any extra-curricu- 
lar, non-academic activity for 
the duration of the probationary 
period, and from having or driv- 
ing any automotive vehicle on 
campus.

Progress and Problems 

In noting its 89th anniversary, the COL- 
LEGIAN can point with pride to its prog- 
ress It is now rated 11th best collegiate 
newspaper published two or three times 

weekly. 

In spite of its progress, the COLLEGIAN 
still has many problems to solve. Since it is 
the only student paper on campus, it must be 
especially careful to express-the opinions of 
the student body, not just those of its own 
members. You can help us to express your 
views by writing your criticisms and sugges- 
tions or just letting us know what you think 
of the paper in general. 



LETTERS 



Give Old Chapel 
Back To The Chaplains 

Dear Mr. Hubley, 

I would like to express my disapproval of your 
letter which appeared in the October 20 issue of the 
Collegian. Let us examine the question of giving Old 
Chapel to the chaplains in a realistic light. Let us 
start at the very beginning: 
Does a god exist? 

Many of us realize that all that we are or have 
we owe to this "creature". We wish to show our 
gratitude; religion shows us how. 

Now that we have shown why religions exist, let 
us consider if religion "interferes" with the 'en- 
lightened progress of education": 

Does religion interfere? Quite the contrary! 
Many famous scientists were "High Priests" in 
religious groups. Priestly, the discoverer of oxygen, 
was a minister; Gregor Mendel, one of the first to 
carry on experiments with genes, was a monk. 
Many institutions of learning are supported by 
religious groups, thus lessening the burden put up- 
on the taxpayers. As for the "enlightening", reli- 
gion puts education in its best light. Science tells us 
the "what" and the "how" of things; religion tells 
us the "why". Science tells me how my body was 
made, and what it is made of; but, religion tells me 
why I am here. 

Actually, the state depends upon the religions 
for ita very existence. If it were not for the religi- 
ous codes of behavior, crime would increase a hun- 
dred-fold; crime-prevention would be impossible 
because the "honest" cop wouldn't exist. Govern- 
ment would collapse. 

Now that the need for religion has been shown, 
let us consider the main problem at hand, Old 
Chapel : 

Why was Old Chapel originally built? What 
money was used ? According to the Brief History of 
the Massachusetts Agricultural College Semi-centen- 
nial publication of 1917, "May 8, 1884, the Legisla- 
ture passed a resolve allowing thirty-six thousand 
dollars for the erection of a chapel and library build- 
ing, for the completion of the president's house, and 
for repairs on the north dormitory." (page 31) Thus, 
we see, that as far back as 1884 the Legislature 
realized the need for religious education on our cam- 
pus. We should realize the need today. We should 
"Give Old Chapel BACK to the Chaplains" for that 
is what it was built for. 

Raymond Leo Blain '68 



Old Chapel Best Serves 
Purposes of Education 

T must disagree violently with just about every- 
thing Mr. Merino says concerning the All-Faith 
Chapel (Oct. 21), and T must agree, at least in part, 
with the opinions expressed by Mr. Hubley on the 
game subject. Like Mr. Hubley I feel strongly that 
the Old Chapel could best serve the purposes of edu- 
cation and progress in remaining strictly secular. 
1 agree too that it would be an unfortunate situa- 
tion to compel any student to share in supporting 



In a recent address, President Mather made mention that 
"professors are an elite class" who are more deserving of a 
pay raise than the state house janitors. He was referring, of 
course, to the recent pay hike voted for all state employees 
—the expediency finally resorted to by the legislature to ob- 
tain a pay raise for state-employed educators. 

To assume that the President's statement meant that 
professors are better than janitors would be an erroneous con- 
clusion. Our national heritage is distinctly one of "no man is 
better than another." This is not to say that we really prac- 
tice equality in all matters, or that we even believe in it. 
Regardless of contrary sentiments, men are not created equal 
except in the narrowest of interpretations. If they were, there 
would be nothing to strive for, and humankind would stag- 
nate. If we admit this, why should we feel obliged to treat 
all men to equal rewards? 

Well then, what is a man worth ? What is to be our cri- 
terion for assessing the value of an individual or class ? Prob- 
ably one of the best yardsticks is the use society obtains 
from a given individual or class. In this way, it can be ascer- 
tained that, assuming equal competence in their respective 
fields, professors are indeed more valuable members of society 
than janitors. But to say that professors are better (per se) 
than janitors is definitely non sequitur! 

From the standpoint of their common humanity, one can- 
not say that professors are more deserving of rewards than 
janitors. But as members of different job classes, they are 
certainly unequal, and deserve considerations relative to their 
importance to society. 

The original bill for a pay increase for educators only was 
the one which should have been passed. The final measure 
taken to provide this raise, by in- 
cluding all state employees, was an 
unnecessary and undesired burden 
on the taxpayers. There was no 
need to provide higher wages to 
compete in the national labor mar- 
ket for better qualified highway 
workers or janitors. But there was 
a need to provide higher wages for 
teachers in order to put the Uni- 
versity in a bargaining position 
with other institutions of higher 
education in obtaining well-quali- 
fied instructors. The assumption 
that the rest of the state's employ- 
ees needed a raise just as much as 
its educators was, in essence, a 
false one. This is what happens 
when people get taken in by an un- 
reasoning definition of equality. 



L. P. 




A man should profit from his labors according to how 
well he serves mankind. A man can do no more than work 
to the best of his native and acquired ability at that job, 
necessary to society, for which he is best suited by intelli- 
gence, temperament and physical constitution. Who best 
achieves this goal serves mankind best. 

Ideally, every man sharing his portion of society's labor, 
should share equally in society's productivity. Since man 
is not altruistically motivated, however, some incentive sys- 
tem is needed as a spur to his selfish nature. In our society 
graduated pay scales serve as such a spur. 

President Mather has claimed that the "professors are 
an elite class" who are more deserving of a pay increase 
than the janitors in the State House. If one yields to the 
contention that they are elite, does it necessarily follow that 
fney are more deserving of a pay increase? Has tr^is con- 
tention not already been sufficiently acknowledged by the 
fact that professors receive more money than janitors? Ob- 
viously, the President was not just seeking higher wages 
for the faculty with which to attract new personnel; rather, 
he was trying to further increase the prestige of professors 
in our social system. 

Is prestige, then, something to be heightened or less- 
ened by a vote in the legislature ? Is it necessarily commen- 
surate with salary? Prestige is only a reflection of the free 
and spontaneous respect of the people, and cannot be ex- 
torted from their representatives in the legislature by 
threats and entreaties. 

I think that the President's statement ignores the fact 
that the concept of relative worth is only a convention of our 
society. Judged by criteria other thjan their own, the pro- 
fessorial elite might compare quite 
unfavorably with the socially in- 
ferior custodians. The professors' 
elevated social position is largely 
just an accident of aptitude and 
convention, and is not necessarily 
based upon a fair judgment of his 
worth. 

. Finally, I think the President is 
revealing that he inwardly con- 
siders manual labor demeaning. 
This is a bourgeois prejudice pre- 
valent in our society. It is a luxury 
that exacts its price in paunches 
and semi-atrophied limbs. Any 
honest labor, even though menial, 
does not by its nature demean; it 
can only ennoble. The thing that 
can demean a man is the spirit in 
which he undertakes his life's la- 
bor. This mean spirit knows no 
class bounds. — R. E. V.

institutions which he believes to be inherently 
harmful or, at best, quite valueless. 

If there are already temples on this campus 
(though I must confes? that my eyesight cannot be 
as keen as that of religion-minded Mr. Merino) I 
earnestly hope that their existence will be a short 
one. Yet I would sooner see the Old Chapel stand as 
a symbol of Progress than as a symbol of 1 what Mr. 
Merino would call its opposite, namely, religion. In- 
cidentally, I am sure that many readers would find 
it extremely informative to hear Mr. Merino's views 
on the "validity" of the "more valid religions" as 
opposed to the "validity" of Progress worship. 

The problem of an All- Faith Chapel is a grave 
one. If the Administration intends to use a state- 
owned building for religious purposes it is, so to 
speak, consenting to the marriage of Church and 
State. To my mind, at least, the seriousness and dan- 
ger of such a step is in little measure lessened by 
the fact that this marriage is polygamous rather 
than monogamous, i.e. that it is a marriage between 
Churches and State. 

The University must realize that in reserving 
the Old Chapel for religious use, it is excluding from 
a venerable campus landmark those of this aca- 
demic community who, for reasons of conscience, 
could not honestly participate in its activities. Not 
everyone on this campus belongs to a religious or- 
ganization. Not everyone who belongs to a religious 
organization belongs to one of those which will be 
represented in the Chapel. 

In fact, then, if not in theory, a public building 
standing on public lands will be used for private, 
sectarian interests. I contend that, unless the Uni- 
versity can show that all members of the community 
can, in respect to conscience, derive benefit from an 
All-Faith Chapel, the University will be guilty of 
a violation of the rights guaranteed to every man 
by the United States Constitution. 

Those who favor the proposal for a religious 
Chapel will by no means be deprived of their un- 
alienable right to practice the religion of their 
choice. The town of Amherst fairly bristles with 
church spires. A glance at any bulletin board on 
campus will attest to the fact that there are nu- 
merous church activities for him who wishes to par- 
ticipate. If the need for religion at the University 
of Massachusetts is as great as it is purported to 
be, the zeal of the devout should not b> measurably 
lessened by a half-hour's walk into town. 

Yours truly,

Three On Emily 

by ELIZABETH SCHNECK '62 

The spirit of Emily Dickinson's poetry was recreated anew this 
past Friday at the symposium: "Three Poets on Emily Dickinson". 
Amherst College, which presented the set of critical discussions, want- 
ed to bring alive Miss Dickinson's poetry and demonstrate her crea- 
tivity. In this it quite well succeeded. 

The poets and distinguished literary personalities, who favorably 
discussed the works of the noted nineteenth century Amherst poetess 
included: Archibald MacLeish — winner of three Pulitzer Prizes and 
author of the current Broadway hit J.B.; Louise Boland — New Yorker 
literary critic; and Richard Wilhnr — Pulitzer Prize winner and pro- 
fessor at Wesleyan. 

Highlighting the afternoon's discussions, Mr. MacLeish gave a 
personal interpretation of the works of Emily Dickinson. Her mas- 
tery of image, rhythm, and word is an essential part of her verse and, 
yet, Mr. MacLeish believes it is the "voice rather than the form which 
supplies the key to her work." She possessed an unusual sense of or- 
der and 'more than usual emotion" which were to be hers alone. "It 
is the mystery of the poet who is speaker and actor in her own 
poems." 

'What, then, is the tone of Emily's poems?' is the question Mr. 
MacLeish raised. He has suggested three characteristics. Her verse 
was "wholly spontaneous". Too, her poems were not, as frequently 
supposed, directed to herself but instead to 'you' the individual. An- 
other and one of the most important aspects of Emily Dickinson's 
poems is that it "does not clamor at us". In her verse is contained the 
New England voice for she sees "New Englandy" and her lines 
are candid and personal, absent of self-pity. "Tone," Mr. MacLeish 
stated in concluding, "is the root itself of her greatness." 

Miss Boland spoke on a statement which she made in 1945 — that 
the time had come to "assess Emily Dickinson's powers on the high- 
est level of mystical poetry." Because there is a similarity between 
the mystic and the poet, Miss Boland made comparisons to English 
Romantic poets, primarily Blake. She had the "power to say the un- 
sayable . . . (and was) . . . equipped with an ironic intelligence and 
great courage of spirit". 

Richard Wilbur, in his discussion "Sumptuous Destitution", be- 
gan: "The poems of Emily Dickinson are a continual appeal to ex- 
perience, motivated by an arrogant passion for the truth." He con- 
tended that the poet's truthfulness lay in her 'psychic reconnaissance.' 
From self-analysis Emily Dickinson was able to articulate about in- 
ward matters, to see an aspect of the world which was in no way 
constant, and to discover her own grounds for the conception of 
heaven. Emily Dickinson had a sense of incapacity and privation; she 
was "an unsteady congregation of one." Bringing to an end the dis- 
cussions, Mr. Wilbur said: "... her poetry with its articulate faith- 
fulness to inner and outer truth, its insistence on maximum con- 
sciousness, is less an avoidance of life than an eccentric mastery of 
it." 



Butterfield 
Dorm Dance 

by AL BERMAN 

The first dorm dance of the 
season was held Saturday night, 
October 24. Over one hundred 
students attended and, at the end 
of the evening, all had the same 
comment, "It was great!" 

Saturday afternoon, a dozen 
residents of Butterfield trans- 
formed the cafeteria into a cozy, 
atmospheric dance floor, with 
decorations emphasizing the 
theme of Harvest Hop. 

Music was provided by means 
of a huge stereo outfit, combin- 
ing the rigs of three residents. 
During intermission, cider and 
doughnuts were served, and a 
hilarious recording, Inside Shel- 
ley Berman, was played. 

Although, at the beginning, 
things didn't look too bright, af- 
ter about an hour everybody 
seemed to be dancing and, by 
10:00, you couldn't find a wall- 
flower in the place. 

Judging by the success of 
Saturday's dance, President Kev 
Lavin and Social Chairman Gene 
Lambert have announced that 
plans are being made to hold an- 
other dance in a few weeks. It 
is hoped that those who attended 
Saturday will spread the word to 
their friends concerning the next 
one. 

Watch the Collegian for furth- 
er details.

Yesterday might have been just 
another quiet uneventful Sunday, 
but it was far from that. I was 
awakened by a loud whinny. What 
are those agriculture students up 
to now, I wondered. Peeping out 
the window through one half-shu^ 
e>e, I saw a horse trot by, pulling 
a carriage of antique design. 
Seated within was a couple 
dressed in the type of attire cur- 
rent two centuries ago. Oh, no; I 
must be dreaming, I assured my- 
self. Rut no; following the car- 
riage were four people similarly 
costumed riding a bicycle. By 
then, I was completely awake, 
enough to realize having heard 
something about a bi-centennial 
parade. Neyer a dull moment at 
UMass! 

Have you ever realized how 
very true this is? There is always 
something to do here on campus 
to take up spare time, study time, 
letter-writing time, and sittin'-in- 
the-Hatch-watchin'-all-the - girls- 
go-by time, too. 

For example, the University 
Rod and Gun Club will hold a 
regular meeting tomorrow night 
at 7:30 in Room 102 of the Con- 
servation Building. A short dis- 
cussion will be held regarding the 
wildlife exhibit at the Horticul- 
ture Show. This exhibit, spon- 
sored by the Rod and Gun Club, 
will this year feature furs. 

The main speaker will be Dr. 
William Sheldon, who will tell of 
his experiences in hunting giant

REDMEN STRUGGLE TO 0-0 TIE WITH HUSKIES 



Wind And Rain Keep UMass 
From Evasive Win Column 

hv V1N BASILS '62, Sports Editor 



The Redmen Warriors failed 
to get back on the winning 
streak when they were held to a 
gcoreless tie by the Northeastern 
Huskies, Saturday, at Kent Field 
in Brookline, before some 1200 
rain drenched fans. A steady and 
heavy rainfall, plus a 25 mile per 
hour wind, made the playing 
conditions almost impossible. 

Although Northeastern had 
more first downs than UMass, 
the game was quite even. Both 
teams threatened periodically, 
but could never click for the 
marker. The first UMass threat 
came late in the second period, 
when quarterback John McCor- 
mick and end Harry Williford 
combined a 29 yard pass play to 
bring the ball to the Huskies 38. 

Dick Hoss, junior fullback, 
bulled up the middle for 21 
yards, being tackled on the 
Northeastern 17. The Huskies 
made a fine goal line stand 
which they topped off by inter- 
cepting a McCormick pass in the 
end zone. 

Hoss combined with halfbacks 
Bill Reynolds and Armand Sa- 
bourin in the fourth period, in 
marching 65 yards up field to 
the Huskies 13. Halfback Tom 
Delnickas, returning after a 
three-week absence, attempted a 
fourth down field goal, which 
fell just under the cross bar. 



Later Delnickas made one of 
the finest runs of the day, when 
he wiggled and squirmed 36 
yards to Northeastern's 18. But 
once again the Huskies' defense 
came through and the Redmen 
offense was stymied. 

Northeastern threatened early 
in the game when a pass inter- 
ference penalty gave them a first 
and goal setup on the UMass 
four yard line. However, a hold- 
ing penalty, good for fifteen 
yards, extinguished this threat. 
A Huskie drive to the Redmen 
9, early in the second half was 
their only other threat. 

OFF THE RECORD 

A football coach has referred 
to a tied ball game as a waste 
of time. I am inclined to agree 
with him. If the Redmen weie 
picked as underdogs, Saturday's 
tie would have been a moral vic- 
tory. However, as the Redmen 
were supposed to be victors, I 
can't help feeling that the game 
was an entire waste. . . • Del- 
nickas' return Saturday, proved 
how sorely his all around play 
was missed during the past 
works. 

While passing out the laurels 
it must be mentioned that Armie 
Sabourin played one of the best 
games of his college career last 
Saturday.

A newcomer to the University 
of Massachusetts football coach- 
ing staff this year is Fred Glatz. 

Fred is a native of Pittsburgh, 
Pennsylvania, attended the Uni- 
versity of Pittsburgh, and won his 
letters during his junior and sen- 
ior years as an end. He received 
his B.S. degree in 1956 after 
majoring in health and physical 
education, with a minor in Biolo- 
gy- 

After graduation Fred played 
with the Pittsburgh Steelers for 



a year before entering the serv- 
ice. 

While in the army, he was a 
standout performer in football, 
basketball and baseball and also 
assisted with the coaching chores 
in football. 

Last year Mr. Glatz began 
working on his master's degree at 
Pitt and was also a member of 
the football staff where he coached 
the freshman squad and the 
varsity punters.

Booters Lose 
To Springfield 

by BILL LENNON '61 

The once-beaten Springfield 
College varsity soccer team 
splashed its way to victory over 
the Redmen Saturday morning. 
Over three hundred hardy Home- 
coming fans at Afleck-Brack 
Field watched the Maroons score 
five times while blanking their 
opponents. 

Tom Stearns opened the scor- 
ing after four minutes of play. 
The other first half score was 
booted in by Lee Roberts in the 
second quarter. 

The UMass defense was unable 
to cope with the torrential rain, 
wind, and hard driving Spring- 
field line. The slippery and wa- 
ter-logged ball was very difficult 
to control, especially for the 
goalie. 

The Springfield team, proving 
to be the better mudders, took 
advantage of these conditions and 
scored three more times in the 
second half. Roberts booted in his 
second goal while Gil Grant and 
George Brendler kicked in num- 
bers four and five. 

This Wednesday the scrappy 
UMass soccermen travel cross 
town to face the Lord Jeffs of 
Amherst. This will be the last 
road game before they return 
home for the season's final with 
Tufts on November 26th.

Frosh Eleven Stops 
Springfield, 22-8 



by BEN GORDON '62 

It was a bleak day for Spring- 
field when the UMass frosh foot- 
ball coach, Dick MacPherson, a 
graduate of Springfield College, 
returned to his alma mater with 
his entourage, last Friday. 

"This is the game I want", he 
told the Little Redmen, and they 
won it for him, 22-8. 

On the opening kickoff, the 
UMass frosh gridmen began a 
seventy yard touchdown march. 
A 30 yard pass from Quarterback 
Al Hedlund to halfback Pete 
Schindler set up the score. 

Hedlund then hit halfback Paul 
Majeski in the end zone with an 
11 yard pass. The extra point try 
failed and it was a 6-0 game. 

Springfield was not to be out- 
done, however, and quickly re- 
taliated with a 57 yard touchdown 
pass from the Maroon quarter- 
back, Dave Leete to halfback Ron- 
nie Bogue. The extra point try 
was good, and Springfield led, 
8-6. 

Late in the half, the UMass 
frosh brought the ball to the 
Maroon 7 yard line, but were held 
by the Springfield line. The half 
ended with Springfield ahead, 
8-6. 



With the second half, the U- 
Mass frosh came to life. 

Pete Schindler, whose great 
running sparked the team 
throughout the game, took the 
ball over from the five for his 
fourth T.D. this season. 

Quarterback Al Hedlund hit end 
John Morgan in the end zone for 
the two extra points, and the U- 
Mass frosh took the lead. 

The Little Redmen racked up an 
insurance T.D. late in the game 
when halfback Kenny Kezar, 
whose scampering set up the tal- 
ly, broke through from the one. 
Hedlund's extra point pass to 
Kezar was good, and the game 
ended with the UMass frosh out 
in front, 22-8. 

The game was a great team ef- 
fort, with everyone on the squad 
doing his best. Coach MacPherson 
can be proud of his winning team.

Thorp will be a meeting of 
candidates for the varsity hock- 
ey team on Wednesday, Octo- 
ber 28, at 4:00 p.m. in Room 
9 of the Cage. All upperclass-

attend. The meeting is for 
varsity candidates only. 



SPORTALK 



by HAL DM HON '60 

No matter how you look at it, 
Saturday's "Mud Bowl" was a 
moral victory for our hosts. The 
heavier Redmen were unable to 
put together any sort of offense 
against the Huskies. 

A thirty-six yard run by Tom 
Delnickas and a pass from John 
MeCormick to Harry Williford 
good for thirty yards were the 
only bright spots on a rainy af- 
ternoon. 

The Redmen now face BU. 
The Terriers have posted a 2-3 
record. They were upset by 
George Washington in the open- 
er and have lost to Kansas and 
mighty Penn State. Coach Steve 
Sinko's club has beaten Wfttt 
Virginia and UConn. Unless the 
O'Rourkemen play much better 
than they have in their last few- 
outings, it could be a long after- 
noon at Alumni Field. 

Saturday Sidelights 

The Redmen Marching Band 
and the Precisionettes made the 



trip to Brookline hut to no avail. 
Their half-time show was can- 
celled. However, they comprised 
the majority of UMass fans at 
the game. 

All eyes are on Memorial 
Stadium Saturday when UConn 
Imsts New Hampshire in a game 
that may decide the Yankee Con- 
ference ci own. The Blue Wild 
cats have been a pleasant sur- 
prise for coach Clarence "Chief" 
Rnston this season. They haven't 
had a winning year sinee 19R4 
when they won the Beanpot and 
were 7-1 over-all. They are 2-1-2 
this season. A victory for UConn 
would give them the crown for 
another year. 

Delaware continued on their 
merry way with victory number 
five, a 30-6 conquest of Marshall.

Hort Show Theme 
To Accent Home 



by ANN FRAZIER '62 



The opening of the 47th annual 
Horticulture Show, the theme of 
which emphasizes home flora and 
design, will climax the activity of 
University and Stockbridge facul- 
ty and students majoring in hor- 
ticulture, floriculture, landscape 
architecture, wildlife, turf, and 
food management, forestry, and 
agronomy. 

Taking place at the Cage, the 
hours of the Hort Show, free to 
the public, are as follows: Friday, 
4 to 10 p.m.; Saturday, 9 a.m. to 
10 p.m.; and Sunday, 9 to 8 p.m. 

Individual student exhibitions, 
as well as commercial ones, will 
highlight this year's event, which 
is designed to be of interest to 
homeowners. Entered in more than 
150 classes and subclasses will be 
displays of various foliage and 
house plants, a garden of chrysan- 
themums, a commercial arrange- 
ment of roses, and many types of 
floral arrangements, most of 
which involve student and com- 
mercial competition.

Absentee Ballot Questioned 
In Election Controversy 



by LARRY RAYNER '61, News Editor 



The Senate has a problem! 

Last Wednesday's vote is being 
questioned by Robert Armstrong. 
He says that "the absentee ballot 
cast last Wednesday night by 
Louise Hallenbrook should not 
be allowed. Robert's Rales of Or- 
der state that no absentee bal- 
lots shall be allowed unless spe- 
cially provided for by the con- 
stitution of that organization." 



The Senate constitution does 
not provide f n ? absentee ballots. 
However, Robert Zelis maintains 
that for Armstrong to claim vic- 
tory, he must assume that Hal- 
lenbrook cast her ballot for Zelis. 
Theoretically, no one knows how 
she voted and if anyone does 
know how she voted, the election 
is voided, he said. 

It was also pointed out that 



Activities Of SWAP 
Committee Initiated 



Work on this year's SWAP 
Conference began yesterday with 
the first official meeting of the 
Planning Committee. SWAP (Stu- 
dent Workshop on Activities 
Problems), as has been the cus- 
tom for the past two years, will 
convene some time in May. 

Each organization on campus 
may send a delegate and these 
delegates, along with the presi- 
dent, the provost, the dean of 
men. the dean of women, and se- 
lected faculty members go off 
campus for a weekend to discuss 
campus problems, exchange ideas, 
and get helpful suggestions to 
bring back to the organization 
they represent. Tn previous years 
a group of about eighty people 
has gone to the Red Lion Inn in 
Stockbridge, Mass. where they 
not only gained greater insight 
into campus problems, but had a 
very enjoyable time socially.

Committee and two committee 

Jewish Chaplain, 
Rabbi Ruchames, 
Counsels Students 

by GINGER ANDERSON '62 

The Chaplain plays a very im- 
portant role in the spiritual life 
of the University or College stu- 
dent. Rabbi Ruchames, the Jewish 
Chaplain on campus, acts both as 
counselor and adviser to the 
Jewish students, helping them not 
only with religious problems, but 
with the everyday scholastic and 
social problems which face them. 

A familiar figure on campus, 
Rabbi Ruchames has held the 
position of Jewish Chaplain for 
the past fifteen years and during 
that time has distinguished him- 
self in many ways. He is the Di- 
rector of the Hillel Foundation 
here, as well as at Smith College, 
and he serves both Smith and 
Amherst Colleges in the capacity 
of Chaplain. 

Before coming to the U. of M. 
Rabbi Ruchames held a similar 
position at the University of 
Alabama. He received his reli- 
gious training at the Jewish 
Institute of Religion in New 
York City, where he obtained 
his degree in 1948. After do- 
ing undergraduate work at New 
York City College, he attended 
Columbia University, where he re- 
ceived his Master's Degree and

members were selected by last 
year's conference delegates. Hap 
Wilson, who was elected chair- 
man, left school, so Dick Bresciani 
has been selected to replace him. 
The other two members chosen 
were Christa Hahnentftein, Pro- 
gram Chairman, and Kana Lilly, 
Publicity Chairman. 

Mary Ann Blais'was selected 
by the Student Union Governing 

Boa' - '' «n/i oV»A will a«rv» a* secre- 
tary. Another member will be 
picked by the Student Senate to 
serve as treasurer. Ginny Ryder, 
last year's chairman, will act as 
senior advisor. 

In addition to the student mem- 
bers, the Planning Committee has 
two advisors, Mr. Scott of the 
Student Union who worked with 
last year's committee and Dr. Le- 
land Varley of the English De- 
partment who is newly elected. 

It is the committee's hope that 
this year's SWAP Conference will 
be an even bigger success than 
that of last year. 



since Miss Hallenbrook's ballot 
was accepted, and she was per- 
mitted to assume that it would be 
allowed, that it should count. 

It was decided at a meeting of 
Zelis, Armstrong, and Chief Jus- 
tice Don Kelly, that the absentee 
ballot should not have been al- 
lowed, according to Armstrong 
and Zelis. 

However, it is apparently up to 
Kelly what is to be done about it. 

Kelly, one Senator pointed out, 
apparently has three choices! He 
can decide that since no absentee 
ballot is provided for in the 
Senate Constitution, Armstrong 
wins the election 18-17. In this 
event Zelis can stand up and chal- 
lenge the decision of the chair on 
the grounds that Miss Hallen- 
brook's vote is no longer secret 
and therefore the whole election 
should be voided. 

Kelly also could say that since 
the absentee ballot was not chal- 
lenged at the meeting, it shall be 
allowed and the election proceed- 
ings shall be continued exactly 
where they left off last wmIc. If 
Kelly does this, then Armstrong 
could protest saying that he would 
have challenged the ballot except 
that he didn't know about it un- 
til the next day. 

Kelly's third choice is to say to 
the Senate that due to discre- 
pancies in the previous vote, the 
election is voided and thus pro- 
ceedings will have to start all ovei 
again. 

Regardless of the outcome, to- 
night's Senate meeting promises 
to be, as one senator put it, "a 
regular circus".

TODAY'S EDITORIAL 

TOMORROW'S ELECTIONS 

The polls will open tomorrow for the elec- 
tion of Freshman Class Officers, and for the 
election of a Senator-at-large from the class 
of 1961. 

Now the Collegian has for these many 
years been writing divers editorials exhort- 
ing the students to recognize their responsi- 
bility, etc., and to vote in the campus elec- 
tions. Indeed, the student body is beset tra- 
ditionally at election times with all the 
platitudes and cliches in the Collegian ar- 
senal, in order to realize the ideal 100% par- 
ticipation. 

This activity, of writing these editorials, 
becomes tiresome and tedious. Certainly, the 
students ought to know their responsibili- 
ties and act upon their knowledge of their 
responsibilities without exhortations from 
the Collegian. 

Now we have statistics here to show that 
the turnout for the Frosh primary election 
was some 60 % ; which contrasts markedly 
from the usual less-then-50?f — and all this 
without a word of exhortation from us. So 
w.> shall not here exhort. We shall simply an- 
nounce that in the future we shall make the 
effort NOT to write exhortatory editorials; 
more especially since it anppars to have been 
demonstrated that when we keep our edi- 
torial mouth shut, election turnouts corres- 
pondingly increase. 

Good luck to the candidates, and goodbye.

PASSIVE RESISTANCE 

Every year we have been depositing our 
grubby nickles into the swelling treasury of 
the Athletic Department's Gladiator Procure- 
ment Fund. All we have so far gotten in re- 
turn is a soggy sandwich, and sometimes not 
even that, and the hearty cry of "Wait 'til 
next year!" Some of us have run out of next 
yean and some of us have run out of hope. 

This year we started with a "strong 
bench" < it had to be strong this year to sup- 
port the hordes of "athletes" whose education 
Vie are subsidizing.) Behind us this year 
Stands a record of inexplicable defeat. 

Before us stands a formidable opponent, 
Boston University. 

Wo face this contest with a "team" that 
pant Mock, tackle or move the football for 
more than two consecutive plays. There is 
but one course of action left for our stalwart 
eleven : 

PASSIVE RESISTANCE.

TO THE VICTOR 
BELONGS THE SPOILAGE 

The hotly contested Senate presidency 
race is a sign that we have a working democ- 
racy. Our only hope is that the next presi- 
dent of the Student Senate will have a rep- 
resentative l)ody not divided into personality 
cults. 



Letters to the Editor 

OLD CHAPEL CONTROVERSY 

Freedom of Conscience Threatened 

To the Editor: 

The people seem to be aroused by my letter of October 20. When 
I penned it I suspected that I might cause some controversy. I hardly 
expected it to draw the type of reply that it did. It seems that the 
people are willing, even eager, to dismiss the principles of civil liberty 
and religious freedom for the sake of saving themselves a twenty min- 
ute walk. If there are not others who 'feel as vehemently about the 
issue" as I do, then I can only conclude that they are ignorant of the 
encroachments being made by certain religious groups upon the funda- 
mental American freedoms, or they haven't thought about the impli- 
cations of this movement. 

I feel that each man has a right to his own beliefs, be they re- 
ligious or non-religious, and that at the core of this idea is the free- 
dom not to be forced to contribute materially or otherwise to any sys- 
tem of beliefs in which one does not believe. It was "progress" which 
brought about the disestablishment of the Congregational Church in 
the state of Massachusetts (accomplished, after a struggle, in 1833) 
and, although I certainly do not wish to "cram the student's mind with 
facts and figures," I consider any step in the direction of state sup- 
port of religion to be, to say the least, undesirable. It is the respect 
shown in the past for these liberties which has made America the 
haven of the oppressed, and the bulwark of world freedom. 

If I become a "frustrated pedagogue" it will be because I wasn't 
able to do my part in strengthening and defending the ideas of the 
Constitution and the American Experiment. 



Sincerelv, 



Robie Hubley '61 



Congratulations to Mr. Hubley 

To Mr. Hubley: 

During this period of your abuse and excoriation you may take 
comfort from the fact then whenever anyone speaks his mind against 
mass attitudes about religion, motherhood, or capitalism all the smug 
Lilliputians suddenly find some courage t<» roar their usually emotional 
and irrelevant protests. 

It is discouraging that a campus newspaper could not find among 
the responses to your thought provoking letter some argument against 
it that dealt with your thesis instead of the name calling efforts of 
Cronin and Theodores, but it is encouraging that something else is 
appearing in the Collegian besides the usual Greek society news and 
cloddish humor. 

Further, you should be appraised of the fact that as soon as Joe 
Schultz, the guy next door, gets ordained into this or that, this makes 
him untouchable. (Watch what happens when the film "Elmer Gan- 
try" makes its appearance.) To violate this principle permits all the 
NICE people to beat you to a pulp. Violence in virtue's name is Chris- 
tian charity reinforced with brass knuckles. 

My periodic talks with religious groups on this campus on 
secular approaches to man's role in the world, science being one of 
them, has fortified my belief that the current religious embrace is of 
no particular consequence. It will run its course like all the others, 
and eventually the many violations of the "Separation" doctrine will 
be corrected through the attention drawn to them by people like your- 
self. Mr. Cronin was right, y<>u have made yourself unpopular, but 
people with progressive convictions seldom win popularity contests. 

Cordially, 

Dr. R. S. Feldman 

Professor of Psychology 



(Dr. Feldman received his B.S., M.S., and Ph.D. from the University 
of Michigan. He joined the fn,„lty at UMass in 1947; in 19' t s he was 
made Assistant Professor; in 1989, he was elevated to Associate Pro- 
fessor; and in 1956 he was appointed full Professor of Psychology. 
Dr. Feldman has served as Research-Psychologist, Department of 
Neuropsychology, Northampton Veterans Administration Hospital 
(1956-1959), and ha* also hecy, a Director of Research Grants for 
tihe National Institute of Health. He is a member of the Eastern 
Psychological Association, the Massachusetts Association of Psy- 
chologists, and the American Psychological Association. Dr. Feldman 
is the author of many papers on abnormal processes in animals, and 
is listed in "Who's Who." 



Hush little Umie, don't say a word,

A New System 
For Extracurricular? 

by CAROL ROONEY '60 
and MARILYN ARMSTRONG '60 

Editor's Note: The opinions expressed in the follow- 
ing article are the opinions of its authors; and as 
such do not necessarily reflect the opinions of the 
Massachusetts COLLEGIAN. 



At present there is a serious problem confront- 
ing the student organizations on campus. That is, an 
exploitation of student leaders by the organizations 
of which they are members. Not only are many stu- 
dents spending more time on extracurricular activi- 
ties than they are on actual studying, but often stu- 
dents are participating to the detriment of their 
academic standing. 

A large number of students are not holding re- 
sponsible positions in extracurricular activities. More 
students should be encouraged to participate. 

Our University is growing in numbers and in 
prestige. We are expanding physically and aca- 
demically. In view of this great expansion we must 
not overlook the importance of correctly administered 
extracurricular activities, the training ground for 
democracy and future citizenship. Therefore, these 
activities should be under some sort of flexible reg- 
ulation. Such regulation would not seek to innibit the 
college student as an individual nor deprive him of 
free choice. It would serve as a guide in his de- 
velopment as a leader and a responsible member of 
the community. 

The present student-faculty advisor system can- 
not deal with the problem of academic failure due to 
overparticipation in extracurricular activities. Also, 
students alone have attempted to coordinate studies 
and activities and have failed. 

It seems that a flexible point system would be 
the most adequate means of coping with this prob- 
lem at the University. This type of system is pre- 
sently in effect in many colleges and universities 
and has proved beneficial. Perhaps we may learn a 
lesson from an institution that is generally believed 
to be worthy of emulation, Wellesley College, where 
under a point system, the most capable students, 
always of extremely high academic standing, hold 
positions in extracurricular activities involving the 
most responsibility and consumption of time . . . 
Why could not such a system bo just as effective at 
our slightly larger, coeducational University? The 
"sink or swim" policy which is in force at present 
pimply shows a total disregard of the importance of 
the development of individual capacities to the BET- 
TERMENT of the student, not his ultimate FAIL- 
URE in college life. 

We would propose a system involving scholastic 
requirements for the positions with the most res- 
ponsibility and consumption of time. Activities would 
be rated by points and the student limited in the 
number of points he may receive. Each activity and 
position in such would be rated according to the im- 
portance, responsibility, and the amount of time 
that would be involved in performance of duties. 
Each student regardless of his average would have 
a limited number of points that could be applied to 
fraternal and professional clubs. This blanket pri- 
vilege, however, would not encompass offices held 
in these organizations. 

Such a system could be most effectively adminis- 
tered through faculty advisors and a special com- 
mittee with membership composed of faculty, stu- 
dent, and administrative representatives. 

We believe the benefits of such a point system 
would he far-reaching in the following; (1) Pre- 
venting overparticipation and exploitation of stu- 
dents; (2) Preventing students from being nominal 
members only of an organization, and doing little 
<>i no real work; (3) Increasing the opportunities for 
participation because of the additional offices made 
available; (4) Encouraging a more responsible choice 
of extracurricular activities; (5) Revealing the re 
quirements of leadership and other positions thus 
accurately showing the capabilities of the student.

Declarer then forces out the SA. 
North then must exit, probably 
with a club and East takes his CA

trump. South is squeezed in the 
red suits and Declarer then can 
make his contract. South is forced 
to hold one heart to avoid making 
dummy's heart good. South must 
sluff 6 cards on trump and then 
must throw 3D, 2C and 1H mak-

CA. Holds Conference 



Fhe Christian Association is 
forming study groups for students 
interested in attending the Chris- 
tian student conference in Athens, 
Ohio. There will be five study ses- 
sions before the conference. The 
first meeting was held on Satur- 
day, October 21 from 4-9 p.m. 
Attendance at the conference is 
not required for participation in 
the study groups. 

The conference itself will be 
held from December 27 to Janu- 



ary 2 at Ohio University. The 
delegations will include 3,000 stu- 
dents, half from foreign countries. 
The main concern of this con- 
ference is the relationship of the 
church to the present revolution- 
ary world. Typical subjects are 
rising nationalisms, the threat of 
Communism, and racial tensions. 
Leaders include Martin Luther 
King, D. T. Tiles and Leslie New-

ige. Rock-hoppers" Gene Amnions, Arnett Cobb and Eddie "Jaws" 
Davis are most frequently recorded from a stable of honkers which 
lias marred what need to be one of jazz's most tastefully assembled 
catalogues. Red Garland, Moae Allison, Mai Waldron and only a 
sprinkling of others arc veatigea of better days (when Miles Davis, 
Rollins. Jackie McLean, Phil Woods. experimentalist Teddy Charles et 
al w,r.' featured on Preatige). Of their recent releases may I recom- 
mend Moae Allison "Creek Hank" and Red Garland "Red in Blues- 
ville". 

R.C.A. Victor— Under the misguidance of jazz director Shorty 
Rogers, Victor carries on the same type of meaningless program as 
Capital. One outstanding older release which can be brought to mind 
is George Russell "Jazz Workshop". 

Riverside Riverside has under contract a prodigious collection 

of east-cnast individualists, pianists Thelonious Monk, Bill Evans, 
Wvnton Kelly. Randy Weston, hornmen Kenny Dorham, Cannonball 
Adderley, Reims Golaon, drummer "Philly" Joe Jones, etc. By present- 



ing these artists with good sense and tasto while disdaining exploita- 
tion, they have succeeded in prodaefag an outstanding procession of 
fine' albums (they lout record until there Is enough written material 
with which to cans out a specific theme for that album and until the. 
desired sidemen can be obtained for th- date and enough rehearsals 
completed for a polished t rdjnt). Only ■ fraction of their out- 
standing release Thelontooa. Monk — Thelonioftt Monk Or- 
chestra at Town Hall" and "Brilliant Corners", Bill Evans— ''Every- 
body Digs Bill Evans" and "New Piano Jazz", Benny Golson— "The 
Other Side of Benny Golson". 

Roulette Roulette has issued several Maynard Ferguson and 

Count Basie recordings and B side by the Mitchell-Ruff duo, a group 
which was a sensation in Moscow recently; aside from these notables, 
production has been limited. 

United Artists— In business only about a year, UA Records has 
made quite a splash. By engaging S colorful assortment of artists of 
varying schools and conceptions and placing them in well thought-out 
formats they have achieved a consistently high level of quality. To 
mention half of UA's catalogue — Art Farmer— "Modern Art" and 
"Brass Shout", Milt Jackson— "Bags Opus", "Benny Golson and the 
Philadelphians", Herb Pomeroy "Band in Boston", Gerry Mulligan in 
both combo and score music from the film "I Want to Live". 

Verne-Verve haa the largest repertoire of name artists in their 
employ. Oscar Peterson, Dizzy Gillespie, Johnny Hodges, Count Basie, 
Ella Fitzgerald, Lionel Hampton, Stan Getz, Anita O'Day, etc. have 
been presented by Verve both on new issues and on a fantastic amount 
of reissues from Savoy Records and now defunct Norman Granz af- 
filiates (Clef, Norgran etc.). Most Verve artists are grossly over- 
recorded, a policy carried on with a complete lack of consideration for 
confused record buyers. For example. Oscar Peterson has over twenty 
Verve recordings and during a recent seventeen-day period cut nine 
sides with his new trio! The latest excuse for mass production at 
VeiVfc has been a deluge of contrived album themes (this is not to say 
that the music is not of a high level — only that the rationale of mak- 
ing the particular record is not obvious) — "Lee Konitz Meets Jimmy 
Giuffre" and 'Herb Ellis Meets Jimmy Giuffre" being good illustra- 
tions.

King- Size in the filter where it matters most . . . 
Lowest in tars of all leading low-tar cigarettes 



World Pacific — Formerly Pa- 
cific, this is a strictly west-coast 
coverage label — and they suceed 
in representing that scene fairly 
well. Their catalogue includes al- 
bums by Chet Baker, Chico Hamil- 
ton, the "Jazz West Coast" series 
and their newest stats, the Mas- 
tersounds. 

I hope that this little summary 
will to some extent substitute for 
the trial and error method of jazz 
record buying often necessitated 
by the unreasonably large selec- 
tion of sides. Specific records have 
been mentioned as a guide to the 
most representative work of a 
particular artist. To further sim- 
plify the situation may I suggest 
a trip to Music in the Round on 
Hampden Street in Springfield. 
Managed by articulate jazz and 
classical music expert Ben Kal- 
man, this store has a spectacular 
stock; if there is anything you 
want not on Ben's shelves he will 
make sure you get it within a 
week. What makes the atmosphere 
even more pleasant is the twenty 
percent discount on all records.

The Campus Beat 

by TED MARSDEN »60 and ERNIE MANDER '60 



I thought there were going to 
be more than us ir. on this, Shad. 

Be quiet and keep stuffing the 
rags in. Not too many more. We 
want to keep him thin. 

How come no one else showed 
up to help us? 

I had to wait till now to tell 
you, Clod. There never was any- 
one else. Secrecy is our most 
important weapon. Pass me the 
rope. 

Maybe we should leave this up 
to the alumni, or the Math De- 
partment. 

Hitch the sign on. Are you sure 
there's an apostrophe between the 
O and R, Clod ? 

Shad, just because all the 
schools do this I still think . . . 

That's your trouble, thinking. 
By morning our names will be all 
over campus. We'll be heroes. 

Speaking of heroes, the Sport 
Parachute Club will hold a jump 
at Orange Airport. Fifteen stu- 
dents will jump Saturday. They 
hope to have a parachute for each 
member. All interested persons 
are invited to attend. 

I'll hold the ladder and you 
climb up and tie it to a branch, 
Clod. 

How high do I have to go? 

Well, in bridge you can only go 
as high as seven. That's what the 
Bridge Club that's meeting to- 
morrow at 7 P.M. says. 

I think I hear someone coming, 
Shad. 

Don't get panicky. It's probably 
the Outing Club practicing for 
their camping trip on Nov. 1st. 
A meeting will be held tonight in 
the Nantucket Room at 7 P.M. 
Dr. Walter Banfield of the 
Botany Department will speak. 
Anyone interested in the camping 
trip should consult the sign-up 
sheet in the lobby. 



We should have picked a better 
tree. 

This is the only one around. 
What do you think this is, a 
jungle? The last time I was in 
one was at Haverhill High. It was 
a "Blackboard Jungle". They 
made a picture out of it starring 
Glenn Ford and Anne Francis. 
It plays tomorrow night at the 
Union at 7. 

Keep the ladder steady, Shad. 
I'm losing my balance. 

Lucky the dummy didn't fall. 

Let's get out of here Shad. 
I have to turn in my Winter Carni 
Theme suggestion before tomor- 
row at 6 P.M. I think my topic 
"Recent Expeditions to the An- 
tarctic" will win free tickets to 
the Ball for me. 

You can't turn that in. That's 
Rev. Daniel Linehan's subject to- 
night at 7 P.M. in the S.U. Ball- 
room. It's a joint meeting of the 
Boston and American Chapters of 
Civil Engineers. AH students are 
invited to attend. 

Do I need tickets? 

No. The only thing you need 
tickets for is the Interfraternity 
Sing and Skits. They'll be on sale 
at the S.U. ticket office tomorrow 
and Friday from 12-5. Tickets are 
one for 35? and two for 70*. 

How much for three? 

They didn't say. Watch it Clod. 

"You're under arrest". 

Wait a minute, you're not Chief 
Blasko. Run Shad, it's Cha . . . 

"I'm taking you two in". 

We sidestepped him easily as 
he tried to tackle us.

duroy, and the hoots themseh 
are fleece-lineo 1 or r a c c o o n - 
trimmed. Tin-so hoots will make 
even the coldest, wettest, MHlddi 

days on campus almost fun. 

First cousin to the mid-calf 
length boots are the ankle-skim- 
ming boots. These have a much 
wider range of design. There are 
the plain boots of last year with 
some fresh and unusual treat- 
m nts in style. Some tie, some 
snap, some huckle, some have 
cushiony ripple soles, others have 
crepe soles, and many, many are 
lined for extra warmth during the 
chilly weather ahead. Suede and 
soft tanned leathers have the 
fashion lead in this field. Need- 
less to say, tights, in new tex- 
tured knits or designs or bold, 
vibrant colors are a fashion must 
with boots. 

At the other end of the shoo 
story are the date shoes. This 
year, toes are more pointed and 
heels are "skinnier" than ever. 
Styles run the gamut from kids 
and calfs to suedes to even velvet, 
with various trims such as wood- 
en buckles and buttons, silver or 
gold trim, bows, ties, and even 
flowers.

Question: How did you feel when you learned that most of the big 
T.V. quiz shows had been "rigged?" 

Bill Kennon '61, G. Barrington: Though I had 
been skeptical of a couple of shows, I found it 
difficult to believe. In order to maintain audience 
appeal, however, this form of control was evident- 
ly necessary." 



Kuss Goldman '63, Fall River: "At first I couldn't 
believe a national network could fool the public 
such as it did. In the future, a prevention of such 
'riggings' must be undertaken." 



Richard Valentinetti '68, Webster: "The rec. nt 
quiz show scandal was surprising, and makes one 
sort of distrust all quiz shows. CHS did a good 
thinjr. when it revised its program of shows." 



Charles Wabeck '62, E. Deerfield: "I felt all along 
the quiz shows were fixed. TV Guide, in an arti- 
cle, went behind the scenes, and revealed a pos- 
sible rigging quite a while ago. Hon could they 
give away that much money anyway?" 






Bill Carignan V>:<, Hudson: "It just made Bit won- 
der if anything left on T.V. is not phony." 





Bob Slesinuer '68, Swampscott: "It makes you lose 
all respect for any of the contestants who have 
ever won anv money."

FACTS W FIGURES 

by DICK BRESCIANI '60 

HI bet you didn't know that— 

THE average weight of Notre Dame's famous "Four Horsemen" 
(1924) was only 157 pounds. 

TWO-THIRDS of the Shrine Game players, who will perform in 
the East-West football game in San Francisco on New Year's Day, 
were picked as early as last month. 

EACH NFL team uses, on the average, over 200 footballs every 
season at a cost of $15 per ball. 

THE HONOR of having the worst, or maybe it's the best, name 
for its athletic teams— The Criminals— goes to Yuma, Arizona High 
School. 

LOU GROZA stellar place-kicker of the Cleveland Browns is in 
his fourteenth year in the pro grid game. 

JOHNNY UNITAS, Baltimore's ace quarterback, is an NFL ex- 
ceptionv among the players because he still has all of his teeth. 

THE AMERICAN Football Coaches' Association contends a youth 
is 12 times safer playing football than driving an automobile, and is 
at least twice as safe when rifle shooting, hunting in general, or swim- 
ming. 

Fresh In Tourney 

THE UMASS freshmen basketball team will compete in a tourney 
at West Point, Dec. 22-23. (Dick Garber's frosh will battle it out with 
Penn, Rutgers and Army for the tourney title.) 

CONNECTICUT claims it has its best freshman basketball team 
ever, and that two tall transfer students, ineligible last year, will 
transform the varsity from a good team into a very good team. 

REDMAN varsity basketball coach Matt Zunic feels his club can 
capture the Conference this year, although UConn and Rhode Island 
will be tough. 

THE varsity hoopsters will travel to New York City during the 
Thanksgiving vacation to scrimmage Fordham University. 

IN 1956 the UMass football S q U ad, 29 strong, gave Boston Uni- 
versity a terrific battle for three and a half periods at old Braves 
Field before losing, 19-6. 

SOME OF the most exciting football around is played Mon.- 
Thurs. between 6:30 and 8:30 when the Intramural Fraternity teams 
battle it out. (Tomorrow night Kappa Sigma meets AEPi and SAE 
tangles with Sig Ep in the biggest twin-bill of the year.) 



AN APPEAL 

Coach Dick MacPherson's frosh 
gridmen are a winning team. The 
mere fact that they are freshmen 
should not deprive them of sup- 



port from fans on the sidelines. 

It's a good thing to have a win- 
ning team to root for, so let's get 
with it and get down to Alumni 
Field when the Little Redmen 
meet the Stockbridge squad, Fri- 
day, at 3:00 p.m. 



Man, Dig Those Crazy Legs 




The once-beaten Harriers of UMass are looking forward to the Yankee Conference Championship 
track meet coming up at the University of New Hampshire this weekend. Shown from left to right are:

NOTICE 

The Collegian has just re- 
ceived word from a cosmetics 
corporation that a new wonder- 
hair tonic has been de- 
veloped. This wonder tonic is 
guaranteed to put an end to all 
football ailments. Watch the

this great new creation.

The UMass varsity cross-coun- 
try team met the alumni here 
Saturday as rain deluged the 
campus and small lakes appeared 
everywhere. 

A strong alumni team led by 
Don Bamford '58, now a cross- 
country coach at Wilbrahatn 
Regional High School, and Pete 
Conway '58 and Lee Chisolm f>7 
was notable enough to best the 
varsity and lost by a score of 18- 
42. Within this same race the 
Frosh outpointed their Sophomore 
elders 53-62. 

The weather was the worst the 
teams have encountered all this

autumn with the course flooded 
in many places to a depth of three 
inches or more. But all this made 
no difference whatever to the 
hardy runners whose spirits were 
high and never dampened through- 
out the meet. Some of the lads 
forgot their water wings and had 
to go around the puddles instead 
of through them as the more ex- 
perienced men did. 

The meet slowed down only 
once and that was at the first 
loop of Lovers' Lane when the lead 
runners encountered an odd look- 
ing black cat with a white stripe, 
crossing in front of them. Ralph 
Buschmann claimed it meant bad 
luck and he was all for stopping 
the meet lest misfortune should 
befall them. However, the other 
men pushed him on and the race 
continued. 

When the meet was over the 
happy Harriers returned to the 
Curry Hicks Cage where refresh- 
ments awaited them. 

As memorable as this day was 
for both the varsity and the 
alumni it was also an excellent 
workout for the Yankee Confer- 
ence Championships coming up at 
the University of New Hampshire 
at Durham on October 31.

Frosh Play 
Stockbridge 

The UMass freshman football 
team will meet the Stockbridge 
Squad, on Alumni Field, at 3:00 
p.m. Friday, Oct. 30. 

The Little Redmen, fresh from 
their victory over the Springfield 
Maroons, last Friday, and Coach 
Kosakowski's Stockbridge team 
should provide an interesting 
game. 

The men to watch on the frosh 
squad are: halfback Pete Schin- 
dler, who has already scored four 
touchdowns this year, and who 
has sparked the team with his 
great, running, quarterback Al 
Hedlund, whose passing has been 
a great asset tc the frosh squad, 
and halfback Ken Kezar, who ran 
exceptionally well last Friday.

IFC Skits, Sing 
Highlight Weekend 



by LARRY RAYNER '61 
News Editor 

"The Interfraternity Council 
Skits and Sing are scheduled to 
highlight this weekend's activi- 
ties", according to Perry Harris 
(PSK) and Dave Burke (KS),the 
respective chairmen of the pro- 
gram. 

"The fraternity Skits are to be 
put on in Bowker Auditorium at 
8 tomorrow night," Harris said 
at the Council of Committees' 
meeting last Wednesday night. 
Tickets have been on sale at the 
Union Lobby from 12-5 p.m. since 
Wednesday and will also be on 
sale at the door. 



"The Sing," according to chair- 
man Dave Burke, "is scheduled to 
begin at 3 p.m. Sunday in Bow- 
ker Auditorium. Tickets, which 
cost only 35 cents, are also 
available at the door." 

Both Harris and Burke de- 
scribed the program as "delight- 
ful, inexpensive entertainment," 
and advised, "no one can afford 
to miss either of these annual 
events." 

At the weekly Fraternity Pres- 
idents' Assembly, Tom Campbell 
told the members that the IFC 
social committee on rules will 
have two Fraternity presidents

The nationally famous Naval

aviators is making at some of the 
nation's top gridiron classics. 

The Drill Team is comprised of 



a voluntary group of Naval and 
Marine flight students. Team 
members practice the intricate 
marching routines which have 
brought them national acclaim in 
their spare time. No special priv- 
ileges are granted them. 

Members of the Drill Team will 
be on campus for several hours 
after the game and will gladly 
give information about the Naval 
Aviation program. 



THIS MONTH WE HONOR 
ROBERT ZELIS, 60 

In answer to the type of lead- 
ership he planned to give the 
Senate, Bob said that it would be 
a strong, progressive leadership. 
He felt a president should lead by 
giving his own ideas to commit- 
tees to work on and by encourag- 
ing and helping the committee 
with its ideas. First and fore- 
most, he believes that the leader 
should have the strength of pur- 
pose to carry through the poli- 
cies and recommendations ap- 
proved by the Senate. 







The newly re-elected president 
of the Senate, Robert Zelis, is an 
active man on campus. A member 
of Adelphia and twice chairman 
of the Student Union Governing 
Board, Bob also serves on the 
RSO Committee. In his sopho- 
more year, he took part in the 
Intercollegiate Debating Society 
and was president of Phi Eta 
Sigma, a tutoring organization. 
Bob is a pre-med student major- 
ing in chemistry and minoring in 
philosophy. After graduating 
from the University of Massachu- 
setts, he plans to further his edu- 
cation at Cincinnati Medical 
School. 



UM Honors Town 
With Art Exhibit 

The Art Exhibit, UMass' con- 
tribution to the Bicentennial Cele- 
hration of the town of Amherst, 
has been on display in the Com- 
monwealth Room of the Student 
Union. Marking the close of the 
celebration, the exhibit will end 
Saturday, October 31. 

Including art to please every 
taste, the exhibit has paintings 
submitted both by well-known 
artists and beginners of the Am- 
herst area. 

The joint efforts of the Student 
Union Program Council and the 
Art Department made this exhibit 
possible.

Dean Curtis Bans 
Co-ed Coffee Chats 



Male students in groups are 
not allowed to "stop in for cof- 
fee" at sorority houses, accord- 
ing to Dpan Helen Curtis. Unless 
each individual is invited in by a 
different girl, the men may not 
enter a sorority house, she stated 
yesterday. 

Questions arose this week con- 
cerning the visiting of sorority 
houses "for a cup of coffee and 
a chat" by a group of men. The 
Dean of Women's reaction was to 
declare that under existing rules, 
this is not permitted. 

The rule Miss Curtis cited pro- 
vides that "A man caller is wel- 
come at a University Women's 
Residence after 1 ;00 p.m. pro- 
vided that he has a specific host- 
ess. The hostess is responsible for 
her guest . . ." 

(Ed. Note: U of M Handbook, 
p. 38, Item t?, "Callers"). 

Asked if she considered a 
"group visit" a party, Miss Curtis 
replied, "Definitely." She added 
that all parties must be regis- 
tered with her office at least a 
we°k in advance and must con- 
form to other University regula- 
tions concerning mixed social 
events. 

Because men students were 
vitally involved with the ques- 
tion, Dean of Men Robert S. Hop- 
kins was asked for a comment. 
After considering the question he 
replied: "1 don't understand the 
interpretation of the social rules 
in this instance." 

That the matter will be brought 
up at the next meeting of the 
Student and Faculty Committee 
on Student Social Activities was 
asaurred by a student member. 
However, this meeting is not 
scheduled until late next month. 



Some men students indicated 
that they hoped for a "more rea- 
sonable arrangement before the 
committee meets. 

Obviously irate, one fraternity 
member declared, "This is push- 
ing it too far . . . how 'Victorian' 
can you get!"

vailing side, therefore either side 
can move to reconsider. Reconsid- 
eration places the Senate in the 
same position they were before 
the original vote to be reconsid- 
ered was taken." The motion was 
passed and the election reconsid- 
ered. 

Twohig, speaking for Zelis, 
said that if Zelis has gotten too 
big for his britches, the figures 
18-18 should change his attitude. 
"Bob Zelis is just a better man 
for the job. It's unfortunate Arm- 
strong happens to be here at the 
same time" continued Twohig. 

Senator Dave Mraz '61 picked 
up a book and read the qualities 
of leadership to the Senate. He 
then picked out certain qualities 
which he felt were lacking in 
Zelis. Blasting Zelis for allegedly 
controlling the Senate Mraz add- 
ed, "1 challenge anyone to deny 
that Zelis controls the Senate. The 
Senators lose their drive to do 
things under a poor leader." 

Arthur (Tex) Talelli '62 fresh- 
man senator from the fraterni- 
ties made a comparison between 
Zelis and State Senator John 
Powers who is currently running 
for Mayor <»f Boston. Declared 
Tacelli, "Powers is an experienced 
leader and policy maker. He's 
been in politics for 18 years. Yet 
• an you imagine the plight of 
Boston if Powers is elected?" 

Kevm Shea '61 (Mills) said 
that he had discussed the election 
with his constituents and none 
that he had talked to would have 
roted for Armstrong. 

Twohig concluded by saying, 
"A leader is someone I follow. 
Bob Zelis is a leader. I follow 
him."

TODAYS EDITORIAL 

Senate President Zelis is preparing his list of 
committee appointments for Student Senate approval 
next week. 

The responsibilities of Senators to the student 
bo.lv is a serious one; we hope that the Senate this 
rear will be cognizant of this fact and act accord- 
ing ya in committee and as a deliberative body. 

Aside from the numerous "bread-and-butter" 
motions, there are many areas which have as yet 
been undefined by our student government. 

Perhaps the greatest lack is in the general area 
of "policy-making". Senator Zelis has stated that 
he intends to seek further clarification of R.S.O.— 
Senate policy areas and to present policy definitions 
of specific areas therein. We feel that if this course 
is followed with vigor and determination, our stu- 
dent senate may firmly establish itself this year. 



OFF THE RECORDS 

by VERN PERO '63 

During the past month, a now sport has devel- 
oped at many of the dorms on campus. To play this 
game it is necessary to have a disc shaped object, 
usually made out of rubberized plastic, a body of 
more than Average dexterity, and nerves closely 
akin to bands of steel. 

The disc shaped object is set rotating by a flick 
of the wrist and at the same time is sent flying 
down the corridor with enough brute force behind 
it to stun an average sized gorilla. In some cases 
the object is to catch the disc. In others it is to 
smash it into a zillion pieces, either against a wall 
or against the head of anyone unfortunate enough 
to wander into the line of fire. 

Bofore we had access to these rubberized plastic 
discs we were breed te look elsewhere for the equip- 
ment with which to have our fun. We naturally 
found that the average LP phonograph record was 
quite suitably adapted for our recreational purposes. 
The search then began for albums which the own- 
garded U expendable. The first few to go were 
those of the i?1.98 variety which were usually bought 
beause of the record jackets anyway. 

ft seemed that a great many of the major record 
eompeniee were, and still arc, paying more attention 
to what was on the outside of the album than what 
was inside. True, the big producers always em- 
phasized the frequency range, the lack of surface 
noise, the quality of the microphones used in record- 
ing and the materials used in processing, but in the 
end it is the music which comes out the speaker 
that counts. For this reason, I usually spend a good 
part of the time in record stores listening to the 
.1 ei before I purchase them. The fact that my 
favorite artist! perform on the disc is no guarantee 
I'll like it. I'm sure many of you feel the same. 

We then worked our way through the scratched 
and mutilated albums which no one had taken care 
of and from which no more pleasure could be de 
rived. 

Toward the end we were getting pretty desperate 
and the house mother was getting too many reports 
of records stolen from rooms. She warned us that 
fun was fun, and too much fun was dangerous. The 
advent of our plastic disc was certainly a boon in 
these crucial times. 

At last all was at peace, and some of us actually 
eesjan te Study. Most of these were immediately 
excluded from our games for all time. But, at least, 
the record snatching has Stopped. Hey! Where's my 
new Stan Kenton album ? 



Report On Chet And Dave 

by JIM TRELEASE '63 

If you happen to flip on the TV set, Monday through Friday from 
7 to 7:15, you are bound to meet two cerebral gentlemen, Chet Hunt- 
ley and Dave Brinkley. Granted, during this time most students watch 
"Death Valley Days," whose panoramic dry landscape resembles that 
of the University, but hear my plea for Chet and Dave. 

No other TV newscast has collected more major awards, iwith the 
exception of Mickey Mouse Club newsreels and John Cameron Swazee. 
John has since graduated to tying Timex watches onto motor boat en- 
gine propellers. Actually, he left his news show because a nervous mo- 
tor boat captain pushed the starter button too soon one night, and con- 
sequently John found it difficult to hold a news report with only one 
finger on each hand. 

Back to Chetie and Davie. The way they work their show is: 
Chester operates put of New York (although the American Medical 
Association doesn't know it), and Dave reports from Washington. It 
is widely recognized that Dave has the easier job since he covers Con- 
gress and thus gets all the laughs. NBC calls them their "evening 
duet" and, believe me, I've heard them harmonize into some terrific 
numbers. On a recent show, they opened with « chorus of "It's Only 
Make Believe" as an introduction to their TV quiz scandal report. 

Time magazine refers to them as "two unexcitable men who 
seldom pontificate." This is really true . . . nothing seems to excite 
them. For instance, Dave will give the latest news on integration, 
legislation, summit meetings, and other folklore, and conclude with a 
note of interest like: "In the hustle and bustle of world affairs, a hu- 
man interest story was almost overlooked. A Russian bomber dropped 
a hydrogen bomb here on Washington, today. Luckily there were no 
casualties . . . because no one was in the city at the time. Ike had gone 
to Paris to lose his cold, Nixon was at a county fair, the Supreme 
Court was in New York to see 'Lady Chatterley's Lover' for the fifth 
time, and the leaders for civil rights legislation were trying to dis- 
mantle a bomb in a southern school." 

Chet also has a Sunday show for intellectuals on which he ex- 
plores the heavy subjects in the news — Elsa Maxwell, Jackie Gleason, 
etc. 

In a recent survey, members of Congress were asked to name 
their favorite news program and the "Huntley-Brinkley Report" copped 
top honors (31.8% vs. 16.1% for John Daly). These figures totaled 
48.9% which just points out the need of higher salaries for govern- 
ment officials since the other 51.1% couldn't afford TV sets. 

Time magazine also reports that President Eisenhower watches 
their show nightly and he told Huntley that "his telecasts in advance of 
the Khrushchev visit were a major factor in determining the official 
U.S. approach." This I feel is very democratic of Ike ... to let a mere 
TV reporter determine our foreign policy. This could set a trend ... 
Michael Anthony could serve as our assistant to Ivy Baker Priest, and 
Steve Canyon might serve as consultant to General Curtis LeMay. I 
feel a lot safer now that I know in case Hagerty gets sick Chet and 
Dave can run the country. 

Their unique sign-off has become their trademark over the last 
three years. The screen is cut into two segments, Chet and Dave face 
each other misty eyed from opposite segments, and one says, "Good 
night, Chet", and the other replies. "Good night, David." With this, 
the two walk off . . . dressed in identical pajamas and bath robes with 
NBC monogramed on each. 

So be surely to watchily the "Huntley-Brinkley Reportily" nightly. 
!y. 



LETTERS 



THE MASSACHUSETTS COLLEGIAN, FRIDAY, OCTOBER 30. 1959

IN THE EYES OF MORTARBOARD 

Culture should be an important part of your life while you are at 
the University. Ultimately it leads to an understanding and apprecia- 
tion of the fine arts — art, drama, literature and music — which we feel 
can be acquired either actively or passively. 

Amherst is in a particularly pood location as far as cultural op- 
portunities are concerned. Amherst, Mount Holyoke, Smith and the 
University cooperate in the Four College Program which offers a 
diversified program of concerts, distinguished lecturers and student 
productions. Notiees of coming events are posted on the bulletin 
boards in all of the dormitories as well as in the Student Union, and 
there are plenty of busses running to the colleges. 

In celebration of its Bicentennial anniversary this year, the town 
of Amherst has planned a Varied program of cultural activities. Why 
not drop in at the Jones Library to see the new Robert Frost room, 
or visit some of the old houses in the area? 

Take advantage also of the art museum at Amherst College and 
the Sunday evening foreign movies at Kirbv Theater. 

You will find, however, that there is quite a wealth of cultural 
opportunities here at the University. Our campus Fine Arts Council 
does an excellent job of acquiring fine lecturers and musical artists. 
Then too, the special events committee of the Student Union plans 
such events as Apple Polish Hours which afford an excellent oppor- 
tunity of exchanging ideas and getting better acquainted with the 
professors in your major field. At regular intervals art exhibitions are 
held in the Commonwealth Room of the Union. 

We hopp that you have had an opportunity to buy the new Afos- 
S S JUft u se ft s Bevies*. This is a literary magazine including stories, poems 
and articles on history, political science, etc. We feel that this is an 
outstanding achievement at the University and will bring a lot of 
prestige to our campus. 

Many of the major clubs on campus have extremely fine people 
speak, and you should not feel that because geology, for instance, is 
not your major you should nol attend these meetings. You are urged 
to take advantage of all the outside lecturers who come to campus. 
Too many times we baoente "bogged down" with our courses and our 
social life and miss many of the (wonderful cultural opportunities 
around us. There is much knowledge to be gained outside of your regu- 
lar course of studies — make the most of the events at the University, 
the other colleges, and the area that you possibly can.

"unregistered social orgies" 

To the Editor: 

It is apparent from recent events that one of the 
requirements of the office of Dean of Women or Men 
is a certain quota of Social Probations presented dur- 
ing the semester. 

Due to the relatively low number handed out 
during this semester (0), the above offices are now 
diligently searching out and prosecuting to the full 
extent of the law any unregistered social orgies 
such as going over to a sorority for a cup of coffee. 

I hope that the offices are successful in their en- 
deavors, because not only is their record for stringent 
social regulation at stake, but if conditions do not 
improve rapidly, there are rumors of a pay cut in 
the offing for the disciplinary section of the ad- 
ministration. 



Note — This is my 



opinion. 

Morally yours, 

Richard Bentley '60 



"Zelis' one man rule" 

To the Editor: 

Last Wednesday night at the weekly meeting of 
the Student Senate, Robert Zelis was re-elected Pres- 
ident by a slim margin over Bob Armstrong in a 
hotly contested battle. Discussing the whole issue 
is not our purpose. The main reason for this letter 
is to disclose to the student body and in particular 
the fraternities the type of person they have rep- 
resenting them. 

Just prior to the voting for the Presidency, a 
petition w r as presented to Francis Madden, a frater- 
nity senator. It read: 

We the following fraternity men wish to 
express the desires of our members and 
wish to have you vote for Bob Armstrong 

• ■ • 

It was signed by members of the fraternity sys- 
tem which Senator Madden purports to represent. 
Here is his written reply to the petition: 

It is my personal right to vote for the can- 
didate who will be, to quote a phrase, "the 
best man for the job". You get Armstrong; 
you take the Collegian's right hand man. 
Anyway, njnbody tells me hx>w to vote. 
The first two sentences are subject to much de- 
bate; however, it is the last statement of this "Bene- 
dict Arnold" with which we are here concerned. Vot- 
ing for the best man is important but not as impor- 
tant as a senator representing and voting as his con- 
stituents wish him to. From the last statement in 
his reply it is easily seen that this senator is a 
bigoted, egotistical, glory seeking, power hungry in- 
dividual who, once elected by his constituents, now 
casts them adrift as unnecessary and undesirable 
to his cause, however ill and unworthy it may be. 

Thus Zelis crawled to the Presidency on the 
strength of the vote? of such people as fellow fra- 
ternity brothers, Bill Knowlton who is his chief 
errand boy and brief case carrier and others who 
are awed by Zelis' tyrannical one man rule of the 
Student Senate. 

Theoretically the Senate is a governmental body 
of the students, by the students and for the students 
whose sole purpose is representation of the student 
body. It is our fervent hope that for the good of 
student government the downtrodden minority of 
this year's Senate will rise to the occasion and make 
it a united-body, not a mass of individuals led by 
one power hungry individual.

YAHOO Distribution 

Open Letter to the Student Body: 

In my dorm (Brooks) there are approximately 
170-odd male students and each one is entitled to 
his own personal copy of the Yahoo. A round num- 
ber of 150 books of the first issue were left for dis- 
tribution to 170-odd students. 

I checked with a Yahoo representative on the 
distribution policy underlying the numerical descre- 
pancy at my dorm. I told him that the correct fig- 
ure was over 170 and asked if he or his staff had 
made any inquiries of the campus housing office or 
gone out of their way to obtain the correct popula- 
tion figures of the various dorms. His blustering 
reply to that was that I was "bothering" him. 

I have a tendency to bother people who have a 
responsibility to the student body and are slipshod, 
inefficient, indifferent, negligent, laggard, indolent, 
slack, and lax. The duties of elected officials in stu- 
dent publications, student government, and other 
responsible high places are not always sharply de- 
fined and some groups have a tendency to take ad- 
vantage of the slow movement of public opinion and 
eventual justice to take its true course of the "right."

The Campus Beat 

by JERRY GALLAGHER 

This is the campus. My name's Saturday. I've got three damn 
classes that day. There are thousands of people on this campus. My 
job: make life miserable for them. I'm a grad student. 
10:03 A.M. I had just come from a class in which I thoroughly con- 
fused everyone, and I was enjoying a cup of water in the Hatch 
when a call came in from the Dept. Chief. 
10:03 Ms A.M. (puff, puff) "You called, most exalted Sir?" 
Chief: "Yah, somebody's been writing disparaging remarks on the 

walls of the men's room. Flush him out!" 
10:04 A.M. I went to the men's room and pretended to wash my hands. 
11:04 A.M. I decided to dry them for a while. 
11:05 A.M. A suspicious character entered. I questioned him. 
Saturday; "What are you doing here?" 

Character: "Oh come on now buddy, where've you been all your life?" 
Saturday: "Why'd you do it?" 
Character: "Do what?" 
Saturday: "You know what." 
Character: "Well, it was building up in me all morning; I had to find 

some way to let it all out." 
On Oct. 1, 1959 the Character was tried, found guilty, and sentenced to 

become a grad student.

THE MASSACHUSETTS COLLEGIAN. FRIDAY, OCTOBER 30. 1959 



THF MASSA4 HUSETT8 COLLEGIAN, FRIDAY, OCTOBER SO. 1959 



With The Sororities 



by PAT O'CONNELL '61 

NOTICE: The freshman girls 
who didn't pick up their booklets 
at the Panhellenic tea on Sun- 
day, can pick them up in the 
Barnstable Room of the Student 
Union: Monday, 3-4 p.m. or 
Tuesday, 1:30-2:20 p.m. 

SIGMA DELTA TAU 

Although we did not win the 
float parade, we are very fond 
of gazing at our very own Eiffel 
Tower. BUT we can't see it 
very well when it adorns the 
second floor roof of the house 
next door. 

The S.D.T's enjoyed the hos- 
pitality of the T.K.E's last Fri- 
day night and are hoping to 
show them the same at our ex- 
change supper on November 10. 

The Sig Delt's are looking 
forward to entertaining all at 
our Open House on Saturday 
after the B.U. game. Music will 
be provided by a jazz band from 
Amherst. 

- - Waiting anxiously for our 
Friday evening pizza party with 
Alpha Sig — we don't plan to eat 
supper that night. 

The unpopularity of a certain 
S.D.T. is increasing decidedly. 
She has closed the kitchen and 



refuses to' negotiate terms for 
a reopening. Her name is Mimi! 
SDT welcomes as pledges this 
week: Margie Ginsberg and 
Charlotte Kosencrantz. 

CHI OMEGA 

Our best goes to two pretty 
sisters, Sandy *Hill and Aisie 
Edgerton, who are finalists for 
this year's Mili Ball Queen. Also, 
Nancy Pizzano has been chosen 
as a Dean's Scholar. 

Wednesday was highlighted 
by an exchange supper with 
Theta Chi. Those steaks were the 
tastiest and . . . the company 
wasn't too bad either. 

Thanks, too, are in order to 
Alpha Sig for their party Satur- 
day night! 

When Thursday drew to a 
close, six pledges became new 
sisters of the realm. Carol Jans-
